The InterACT trial 2018-2021
Intervention for Appropriate Care & Treatment

This NHMRC funded Partnership Project (APP1151923) will investigate the effectiveness and cost-consequences of an intervention to reduce the provision of non-beneficial treatment at the end-of-life. This interdisciplinary project is a collaboration between researchers from AusHSI and the Australian Centre for Health Law Research (ACHLR) at QUT and the University of New South Wales, University of Adelaide and Bond University.

This research will build on previous published work by QUT health, ACHLR and University of Queensland researchers.
