Centre of research excellence in Aboriginal chronic disease knowledge translation and exchange (CREATE)
The Centre of research excellence in Aboriginal chronic disease knowledge translation and exchange (CREATE) is a collaboration between the Wardliparingga Aboriginal Research Unit at the South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute, the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO), the School of Population Health at the University of Adelaide, and the Joanna Briggs Institute at the University of Adelaide. The initiative is funded by the National Health and Medical Research Centre (NHMRC).
The objectives of the project are to:
- use existing evidence and, where necessary, develop and collate new evidence to inform guidelines, policies and/or other tools focused on improving care and outcomes in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with, or at risk of developing, a chronic disease
- strengthen the capacity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health service providers and researchers to conduct and use 'evidence' to improve health outcomes.
CREATE encourages the Aboriginal health sector to be involved where possible, to take part in defining best practice for the sector, and also in shaping government policy.
CREATE was formerly the NHMRC centre of research excellence for translational research in the management of chronic disease in Indigenous populations.
