Centre for Research in Family Health



The Centre for Research in Family Health focuses on psychosocial research in mental health, physical health, and family well being. We also provide service on evidence-based interventions that have been designed by our Centre. Our multidisciplinary group is involved in both clinical and epidemiological research including child and family health and health services. We have outstanding expertise in both quantitative and qualitative methodology, as well as distance and web based interventions.

Today, families are more sophisticated and want advice informed by the latest and best scientific evidence. With Ask Dr. Pat they receive step-by-step specific advice rather than general advice on their query.
