What is a Centre for Innovation in Regional Health?

The NHMRC recognises Centres for Innovation in Regional Health (CIRH) that have strong records of achievement and an international level of excellence in delivering research and evidence-based healthcare in regional and remote Australia.

A CIRH must demonstrate:

  1. Leadership in research and evidence-based clinical care that enhances the quality of healthcare in regional and remote Australia.
  2. Excellence in innovative biomedical, clinical, public health and health services research.
  3. Programs and activities to accelerate translation of research findings into healthcare and ways of bringing health care problems to the researchers.
  4. Research-infused education and training.
  5. Health professional leaders who ensure that research knowledge is translated into policies and practices.
  6. Strong collaboration amongst the research, translation, patient care and education programs.
