Devising and providing solutions to the challenges of delivering health care
The Centre for Innovation in Rural Health will create a 695m2 new integrated facility to provide a focal point for research, training and community engagement, devising and providing solutions to the challenges of delivering health care and improving population health in rural settings.
Located on the 3rd floor of the new Lincoln Medical School Building, it will provide space for:
- The co-location of the National Centre for Rural Health and Care, the Community & Health Research Unit (CaHRU) and the Lincoln Institute of Health, including two Professors of Rural Health, and Professors of Emergency Medicine and Care of Older People, with their research teams and the Lincoln Clinical Trials Unit
- Industrial engagement - providing a neutral, pre-competitive, platform for stakeholders across the region to engage with each other and the knowledge base
- Global visiting scholars (including from LaTrobe University, a partner institution in Australia)
- An ultimate cohort of up to 25 PhD students, providing critical opportunities for knowledge exchange with industrial partners
