Research

As a service provider, HammondCare is uniquely positioned to ‘translate’ research into practice. We seek to ensure that our research is sustainable and capable of implementation across all our aged and health care services.

Research themes

  • Dementia and aged care
  • Older persons' mental health
  • Palliative care
  • Pain management and treatment
  • Rehabilitation and restorative care
  • Workplace development and training

Our research not only focuses on improving a person's quality of life, but also seeks to assist family, carers and staff to provide the best quality of care and to feel supported in their role. Researchers at HammondCare blend expertise and passion, service delivery and rigorous inquiry.
