Two post-doctoral research fellowships are available in the new Centre of Research Excellence: Building Quality, Governance, Performance and Sustainability in Primary Health Care based at Warrnambool, Victoria, Australia.
The Centre of Excellence in Primary Health Care Research: Quality, Governance, Performance and Sustainability is funded by the Australian Primary Health Care Research Institute (APHCRI) for four years. The purpose is to build capacity in primary health care research. The Centre will work closely with the Australian Commission for Safety, Quality and Health Care, Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited and the Improvement Foundation of Australia in developing and implementing our research. The Research Fellows will undertake research into how the Australian Primary Care Collaboratives work to improve quality and safety in general practice. The research will generate new knowledge on improving quality and safety in Australian General Practice.
