The Canberra Health Annual Research Meeting (CHARM) facilitates connections between researchers, students, clinicians, policy makers, consumers, carers, industry, administrators, leaders and partners in the ACT’s health system. The meeting seeks to explore and demonstrate how research can contribute to a learning health system through discovery, collaboration and translation.

CHARM is hosted by the Centre for Health and Medical Research, ACT Health and Canberra Health Services, in collaboration with the Australian National University, the University of Canberra, UNSW Canberra, Australian Catholic University and Australian Institute of Sport.

The meeting is a cornerstone event in supporting the ACT’s health system to become a learning health system by investing in its people and showcasing the infrastructure and platforms which facilitate high-value research.

Principal topics covered in the meeting span the National Health and Medical Research Committee’s four pillars of health research (biomedical, clinical, public health, and health services research) and include, but are not limited to, nursing, midwifery, allied health and population health research, data analytics and policy research, pre-clinical and clinical research, quality assessments and evaluations.

CHARM is a three and a half day meeting which includes presentations from invited international and national speakers, and oral and poster presentations from health researchers in our region. A key characteristic of the meeting is the research in focus day, which focusses on one of the Government’s key priority areas.

By providing opportunities to collaborate and network, this professional meeting strengthens interdisciplinary research while showcasing the far-reaching impact of health research in the ACT.
