A Picture of Health 2009
In 2008, 107 different Health Research Board funded research projects were completed. The Picture of Health 2009 represents a snap shot of the outcomes from just some of those projects. The stories come from 55 researchers working in nine universities, eight hospitals and four research Institutes. The topics included range from babies health in the womb, to end-of-life care and span improving heart health, to medication safety. They highlight new discoveries and potential improvements to health service delivery, provide evidence to inform health policies and demonstrate the commercial benefits that can emerge as a result of health research.
