Systems and Intervention Research Centre for Health

The research

The Systems and Intervention Research Centre for Health (SIRCH) brings together scientists and clinicians to promote better health, improve early disease detection and enhance intervention using appropriate workforce education and systems. SIRCH develops and tests approaches that aim to improve equity, access, safety and quality in healthcare. SIRCH is a trans-disciplinary research group committed to inter-professional learning.


The objectives of the Centre are:

  • to facilitate the translation of research and policy to enhance healthcare practice;
  • to increase pure and applied research outputs from the diverse range of researchers in the Centre;
  • to improve the quality and sustainability of the workforce;
  • and apply innovative education initiatives.

The Centre’s activities cover four broad domains;

  • Personalised Health including health promotion, health intervention, environmental health, global health and public health genomics;
  • Applied Health and Safety including safety and quality in health, communication in healthcare and testing new models of service delivery;
  • Aboriginal and Community Health including working with community on developing and evaluating innovative models of care, and challenging attitudes of healthcare providers;
  • SIRCH Teaching and Learning which examines all facets of teaching and learning related to the research domains.
