Research in Metro North

Metro North Health provides vital healthcare services to over a million people in our local area as well as specialist services for the whole of Queensland. This cutting-edge care requires a strong and well supported research community, enabled to develop new treatments, tools and models for early diagnosis and prevention of advanced diseases.

Our mission remains to deliver exceptional health outcomes through globally recognised discovery and translation, because the evidence very clearly tells us that a research rich health service environment will ensure that Metro North patients receive high quality, timely and cost-effective care. The Metro North Research Strategy 2023-2027 will ensure we realise this mission.

Metro North Research Strategy 2023-2027

Excellent healthcare, working together, strong and healthy communities.

RESEARCH STRATEGY 2023 – 2027

Our achievements over the last five years reaffirm Metro North’s resolve to forge a future
where research is a core function of the health service, as much a part of delivering
clinical services as the employment of excellent clinicians and the provision of operating
theatres, beds, medicines and clinical support systems.

Our Vision

Excellent healthcare, working together, strong and healthy communities.

Our Purpose

Together with our community and partners, deliver services informed by research and innovation to improve the health outcomes of our community.

Our Values

Our values and behaviours will hold us to account to our community and to ourselves.

Our Mission

Deliver exceptional health outcomes through globally recognised discovery and translation.

Our Enablers

Our enablers provide a framework to deliver globally recognised excellence in research discovery and knowledge translation. Through the integration of our enablers and themes we aim to build a resilient research culture and create an environment where research is deeply embedded within our health service.

We will partner with consumers to drive person-centred research priority setting and improve the relevance, quality and impact of our research.

We will attract, retain, support and invest in a world-class workforce engaged with research in order to translate discoveries into improved treatments and services that tackle our most complex health challenges.

This will require research information, management and communication systems that are integrated, easily navigated, allow us to readily identify priorities, adapt and innovate, and capture metrics to demonstrate research impact.

This will require investment and sustainable management of facilities, equipment, resources and information and communication technology infrastructure necessary to perform research embedded as core business.

We will need to strategically leverage partnerships across Metro North, Queensland Health, government, primary care, academia, industry, philanthropic and other non-government-organisations to achieve mutual benefit from our collective strengths.

Our Themes

Our themes will strategically position Metro North to maintain and build our research excellence, increase innovation and translation of our research outcomes and address emerging research challenges.

The themes will guide the development, conduct and communication of research across Metro North. We will enable excellence in research through collaboration with our patients, people and partners, and strategically position ourselves to pursue and excel across five key themes. By focusing on these themes Metro North will be strategically positioned to maintain and build our research excellence, increase innovation and translation of our research outcomes and address emerging research challenges.
