Our Research

Our research is embedded in the health system and is impacting directly on national policy, on practice, and on health outcomes. 

ESPRIT fosters a trans-disciplinary team-based approach to research. Our researchers maximise the use of existing data to establish health priorities and develop, test and inform the implementation and dissemination of evidence-based interventions and policies across the care continuum and across settings.
