Welcome to a new initiative at Implementation Central, “Students’ Space”.
What is the purpose of this initiative? Well, students at the International Centre for Allied Health Evidence at School of Health Sciences, University of South Australia undertake a number of exciting and innovative research initiatives.
While many such research initiatives result in research outputs such as journal publications, conference presentations, we wanted to provide another space to showcase our students’ research works.
At “Students’ Space”, you will find succinct summaries of research undertaken by our students, which address common and relevant health care topics and issues. If you are interested in any of our student works, please contact us for more information.
So, check it out and happy reading!
