Population Child Health Research

The Population Child Health group is an integrated multidisciplinary translational research team working across the Sydney Children’s Hospital Network with our partners in Local Health Districts, State and Commonwealth governments, to inform service delivery and policy through innovation, collaboration, research, policy development and advocacy.

The key health challenge of our time is to address the changing health needs of children and young people in our population. Our current model of hospital‐centred paediatric care was developed to deliver acute inpatient and high intensity specialist services rather than high quality care for children and young people with long-term conditions.

Our research aims to understand the determinants of poor health in children and young people; co-develop integrated scalable intervention packages that can be delivered by existing practitioners; evaluate these packages at scale and integrate them into everyday practice.
