Heart Research Centre



The Heart Research Centre is a national centre established in 1989 to conduct research into behavioural, psychological and social aspects of cardiovascular disease.

Findings from the research are used to develop, implement and evaluate interventions to improve the quality of life of patients, families and communities and to encourage healthy behaviours in order to reduce premature disability and death from cardiovascular disease.

The Heart Research Centre also conducts training programs for health professionals working with patients with chronic diseases, such as practice nurses, physiotherapists, nurses, dietitians, social workers, psychologists, Aboriginal Health Workers and allied health professionals.

Investigators from the Heart Research Centre contribute to research about the impact of cardiovascular disease on the mental and social wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
