If you’ve ever wondered why science is “always done that way”, then join us at AIMOS 2023. We can guarantee you will learn a lot about the workings of science and how we can all improve it.
The AusHSI statistics team has developed two new Shiny applications to help researchers synthesise evidence for literature reviews and health economic modelling.
Smoking prevalence across Australia has not substantially declined in the past decade. My PhD project aims to reduce smoking in Queensland by supporting Quitline users to successfully quit smoking through improved uptake and engagement with the service.
World Bronchiectasis Day is held on 1 July and aims to raise awareness, share knowledge, and discuss ways to reduce the burden of bronchiectasis for patients and their families worldwide. Learn how the Cough and Airways Research group at AusHSI is focused on improving the lung health and quality of life of children with bronchiectasis.
It has now been shown that, if bronchiectasis is picked up early in children, appropriate management can reverse the radiological airway damage in some patients. It is therefore crucial that children are diagnosed early and receive the best medical care.
Many parents have not heard of bronchiectasis until their child has been diagnosed. It is often at this point that parents seek out further information, and our respiratory research group has developed several resources to support families.
Bronchiectasis is a chronic respiratory disease which currently has no licensed medication specific to the condition. The BronchiEctasis Trial Testing ERdosteine investigates a bronchiectasis-specific pharmaceutical treatment aiming to improve patient outcomes.
My research uses next generation sequencing technologies to detect gene patterns in blood in children with bronchiectasis. This helps identify which children will have better outcomes and respond best to treatments.
My research explores opioid dispensing patterns for people with spinal cord injuries and will present healthcare providers and policymakers with the knowledge needed to promote better health outcomes.
AusHSI and researchers from the LOCATE-NAFLD project were proud to host an event on 8 May exploring the rising burden of liver disease in Australia, gaining insights into what stakeholders believe can be done to begin addressing the key issues.
