Our research projects

We aim to increase our knowledge and understanding of health issues. By integrating this knowledge with policy and social change, we can improve the health and quality of life of our community.

We will undertake community-based participatory research (CBPR) that equitably involves:

  • community members
  • organisational representatives
  • researchers

These partners will contribute expertise and share decision making and ownership.

The Three Rivers Research Plan can be downloaded here.


An online survey of students that will generate better understanding of their circumstances and experiences of rural clinical placements.

The Collaborative Research Partnership Scheme (CRoPS)

CRoPS offers opportunities for Three Rivers UDRH to partner with community-based organisations on projects that can improve rural health outcomes.
