High calibre research that is improving healthcare outcomes for patients happens every day across Metro North. Our annual Metro North Research Excellence Awards are a chance to recognise and reward outstanding achievements in research across all clinical specialities and professions.
Employees of Metro North Hospital and Health Service engaged in health and medical research are encouraged to nominate for the awards. There are seven categories reflecting the various stages of research: three individual awards and four project awards in addition to our new award, the Consumer in Research Award.
Consumers play a crucial role in medical research as their active participation and feedback contribute to advancing healthcare and shaping treatment options. Consumer involvement also enhances patient-centred research, promoting the development of treatments that address real-world needs and preferences, leading to more effective healthcare solutions.
This is the seventh year we have held the Metro North Research Excellence Awards.
