Research Group: Health Services Research

Our group conducts research on health care delivery and how resources should rationally be distributed to meet the needs in the setting of rapidly ageing populations and increasingly limited resources.

Earlier research in this context has indicated considerable variation in medical practice after accounting for medical needs of populations served. This undesirable variation is associated with inappropriate services, wasteful procedures, and potential harm to patients.

Our activities are aimed at facilitating the translation of research into evidence-based support for health policy decisions to ensure a rational distribution of medical resources in an ageing population.
