AusHSI began as a partnership between Queensland Health, The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, QUT and the University of Queensland. Today, reflecting its impact in transformative research, AusHSI has grown significantly. It is now one of QUT’s major research centres based within its Faculty of Health, strengthening QUT’s reputation for high-quality and high-impact research.

Together with its nursing partners, AusHSI forms part of QUT’s flagship Centre for Healthcare Transformation. This centre represents a major University strength and has a global reputation. As we journey through our second decade, we are excited about the opportunities to build on our strong foundations. We continue to extend our national and international partnerships and grow capacity for health service organisations to evolve and improve based on latest research.
