High quality practise-based research and evaluation is fundamental to the work of UnitingCare Queensland. It informs our approach to providing services to improve the wellbeing of the people whose lives we touch every day of the year.
The research conducted through our institutes and research centres is critical in achieving our strategic goal to be a leader in person-centred care, as we develop new ways to reach out, speak out and care for Queensland communities.
UnitingCare Queensland would like to acknowledge the generosity of the many funders, our 17 national and local research partners, participating clients and patients, and staff across the organisation that initiate, support and implement our research projects. These people make it possible to continue to improve the wellbeing of all who we serve.
