Allied Health research
Four major departments contribute to allied health research: pharmacy, nutrition and dietetics, social work and physiotherapy
Allied health and clinical support services research is one of the newer research centres at the women’s and is continuing to develop. Research in this area involves single allied health disciplines as well as collaboration with other women’s research centres and services.
The four major departments in Allied Health are concerned with exploring various clinical conditions and participate in clinical research to determine evidence based interventions and treatment for patients.
The Women’s pharmacy department and the Pauline Gandel Women’s Imaging Centre also play a pivotal role in research conducted by other services. Without their participation many research projects at the women’s wold not be possible.
