Why we invest in research

As a service provider, HammondCare is uniquely positioned to translate research into practice. We conduct sustainable, actionable research that can be implemented in our aged and healthcare services and more broadly in the sector.

Our research blends expertise and passion, service delivery and rigorous inquiry. We aspire to build evidence that can both improve the quality of life for patients, and assist family, carers and staff to provide the best quality of care, while feeling supported in their role.
