BestSTART-SWS

The vision is to optimise the health, development and wellbeing of all children residing in SWS including the culturally diverse, refugee and Indigenous child and youth population. Team members from CCH are senior co-investigators and research leads for this unit, which brings together world-class clinicians, researchers and policymakers, working with families, children and youth to create a Centre of Excellence. The BestSTART-SWS aims to create a virtual cohort that  will embed research activities into health services, creating a healthier and more connected community of children and families.
