Our Grants

We are committed to delivering future-focused research and evidence-based practice to assure the community that health care is: 

  • of the highest scientific merit and built on strong theoretical foundations 
  • respectful of consumers by including them in the co-design of research 
  • able to meet the anticipated needs of the community by collaborating with academic, government, not-for-profit and industry partners to deliver new technologies and innovations. 

To support our commitment, Gold Coast Health provides a range of funding initiatives. This assists eligible staff to engage in research and professional development activities, aimed to advance the delivery of optimal health care to the Gold Coast community.
