Progressing an evidence-based rural health research agenda.
At Three Rivers, research is a cross-cutting activity that informs our work streams. We value a collaborative approach and our research seeks to engage a wide range of stakeholders.
- Understand the unique characteristics of communities across the Three Rivers footprint to critically reflect on key assumptions and concepts informing strategies and policies to improve rural health.
- Facilitate processes of research co-design involving our diverse stakeholders in conducting research that addresses complex real-world rural health issues.
- Generate high-quality scholarship that has a regional focus and national and international significance.
We undertake research to make a difference in the world. Our approach to research is inquiring, collaborative and inventive. We want to be known for research that is rigorous, future-orientated and esteemed.
We use research to explore patterns of association and causation and draw on theoretical insights grounded in careful empirical investigation.
