It has a strong multi-disciplinary focus, with researchers of diverse background contributing to its work - medicine, nursing, allied health, psychology, biomedical engineering, health economics and software development.
Established in 2002, it has developed a reputation for innovation in the application of novel systems of care, information technology and telemedicine to advance access to, and quality of, specialist aged care services.
The Centre has strong international collaborations throughout Europe and North America, contributing to an international effort to create "multi-domain" third generation assessment systems under the auspices of the interRAI Research Collaborative.
