Knowledge and Implementation Hub

Research evidence and knowledge help us understand what works and how things work in aged care. This can guide our care and inform our training and organisational activities.

The Knowledge and Implementation Hub provides access to evidence and resources on a range of priority topics for aged care. These topics have been identified by the aged care sector. We also have information on urgent and critical needs in the sector.

If the idea of evidence is new to you, perhaps start exploring the Hub by viewing our short learning module on the role and value of evidence in the aged care setting.


Navigating the sector

Sometimes you need some background information or to know what is happening in the sector. The research and project supports section has lots of interesting and useful resources to help you start a project, plan a study or run a training session at work.
