Allied health professionals are often involved in or lead research studies. Others would like to become involved in research. Much research is being conducted in looking at translating knowledge into practice and appropriate evaluation methodology.

CareSearch has extensive research resources that can help you to get started in research and find out what is happening in palliative care across Australia. For example, the Research Data Management System (see link under Research Resources below), is available to Australian palliative care researchers free of charge, to assist in designing surveys and collecting research data.
