Health Translation Queensland

Established in 2014, Health Translation Queensland is an academic translational research partnership working to deliver quality healthcare to the Australian population, with a focus on improving treatment for some of the community’s most devastating diseases and health issues, including cancer, mental health, and maternal and child health.

Health Translation Queensland was founded by Queensland Health, Children’s Health Queensland, Metro North Health, Metro South Health, West Moreton Health, Mater Group, The University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Translational Research Institute, and CSIRO’s Australian e-Health Research Centre.

Health Translation Queensland works with health professionals to identify areas of research need, collaborating with research experts to find patient-tailored solutions.

Research priorities for our partner organisations include telehealth services to improve access for older Queenslanders, rural and remote communities, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; integrated care for chronic disease; and health systems improvement.

In 2017, Health Translation Queensland was accredited as an Advanced Health Research and Translation Centre by the National Health and Medical Research Council.

The Centre delivers national leadership and facilitates collaboration across world-leading health research, evidence based clinical care, and systems improvement, with programs designed to improve health systems and patient outcomes.
