Recent decades have seen substantial improvements for people with cardiovascular disease, but they still account for a quarter of all deaths and cost the Australian economy upwards of $5B every year. Continuing to deliver those improvements that we have seen in recent years with scarce health resources is a constant challenge. That’s why health services research is so important.
August 2022 was Cardiac Month at AusHSI, highlighting the current, past and future work of our Cardiac Health Services group, who are focused on developing new knowledge to drive implementation of high value cardiovascular health services.
Led by Prof Will Parsonage, AusHSI Clinical Director and Senior Staff Cardiologist at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and St Vincent’s, the AusHSI Cardiac Program is working to help health services improve the healthcare provided to cardiology patients. Read a recent profile on Prof Parsonage by the Deeble Institute for Health Policy Research.
