The SA Centre has established Collaborative Research Partnerships with:

Centre of Research Excellence: Frailty Trans-Disciplinary Research to Achieve Healthy Ageing. 

The new Centre led by Professor Renuka Visvanathan, is a national team of collaborators from a wide range of fields. This team will build capacity by training the next generation of clinical and research experts in frailty and also lead research to define and map the extent of frailty, develop and test a new health economics model for frailty, test the implementation of a screening pathway for general practice and develop and pilot novel interventions to treat frailty.

Patient Safety Research Group 

The Patient Safety Research Group led by Professor Bill Runciman provides support for the Australian Patient Safety Foundation (APSF), a not-for-profit organisation devoted to advancing the cause of patient safety. The PSRG works closely with the Australian Institute of Health Innovation, based at Macquarie University, and with a number of consumer organisations and professional bodies. 

A current example of translational research being developed by the PSRG is the “abc (agreed basic care) - sets initiative”, which is part of a larger program of translational research into creating safe, effective systems of care. For more information see on the initiative see: The Patient Safety Research Group “The Abc-Sets Initiative”
