Research raises important questions and contributes solutions to large societal problems. We conduct consumer-based disability and rehabilitation research, focusing on translating the findings into actions and outcomes that really matter.
Our research framework consists of four key elements:
Our engagement with people with lived experience is underpinned by the following:
We deliver educational excellence to researchers, clinicians, tertiary students and people who are living with disability.
The BAIL Scholarship provides opportunity for Masters and PhD students to gain competence in Independent Living (IL).
Our regular presentations offer a wide range of opportunities to further develop knowledge and understanding of Independent Living (IL) and connect with others in the sector.
We apply a culture of knowledge translation research across all that we do.
This spectrum of activities which moves research from the laboratory, the research journal, and the academic conference into the hands of people and organisations who can put it to practical use will help to close the current 18 year gap between research findings becoming common practice.
