Preventive Healthcare and Strengthening Australia's Social and Economic Fabric Strategic Award

Closed on Friday, 28 January 2005, 12:00am (AEDT). Submissions are no longer being accepted.

The NHMRC is keen to ensure that the Australian community has the best opportunity to participate in developing NHMRC reports. This page lists the closed public consultations.

Submissions closed on Friday 28 January 2005

On 24 and 27 November 2004, the NHMRC called for submissions to inform the development of a Research Program addressing the two National Research Priority goals of Preventive Healthcare and Strengthening Australia's Social and Economic Fabric . Your contribution to this process would be highly valued.

The aim of the program is to support research that produces new knowledge and novel interpretations of existing knowledge about the mechanisms by which socio-economic disadvantage contributes to ill health and a decreased uptake of preventive care opportunities and what can be done to improve the situation. The program also aims to promote the translation of research findings into policy and practice thereby leading to improvements in health.

Submissions should be based upon issues that will add value to policy in strengthening the economic and social fabric of Australia and make a significant contribution to improving health outcomes through better policy and practice, particularly in the field of primary prevention.

Submissions should focus on identifying

  1. specific issues and/or
  2. research questions

to assist the Working Group in the process of refining the broad research themes down to more narrowly defined issues and ultimately the strategic researchable questions for which research grant applications will be invited.

Submissions should be clear and concise, preferably typewritten and submitted as an original by mail or by e-mail.

Each submission should include:

  • the name and address of the submitter;    
  • names of any additional contributors to the submission who wish to be acknowledged;    
  • contact numbers in case contact for additional information is required;    
  • fax and e-mail address where possible.

There is no set length for a submission, however submissions should balance the need to provide as much information as possible with a need to be concise. Submissions must provide adequate justification for comments and recommendations made.
