Research is vital in health. The improvements to people’s lives delivered through research support the work of health professionals, services and systems. By fostering a learning health system, discoveries that advance knowledge and technologies, translate interventions and design system-wide models of care can improve health outcomes for all. Fundamentally, research improves our health, our wellbeing and our quality of life.” Rachel Stephen-Smith MLA, Minister for Health, July 2022.
