Primary Health Care Research Evaluation and Development (PHCRED) Program
The GGT UDRH's Primary Health Care Research Evaluation and Development (PHCRED) program was part of phase 2 of the Australian Government's PHCRED strategy. This phase ended on 31st December 2011 and included the Research Capacity Building Initiative (RCBI) and the Researcher Development Program (RDP):
- The RCBI aimed to increase both research capacity and activity amongst primary health care provider groups and support groups in the Greater Green Triangle region. It did this in a number of innovative and sustainable ways which gave researchers opportunities to participate in an education and training program, financial support and mentorship throughthe provision of research bursaries and access to a wide range of research resources.
- The RDP aimed to develop the primary health care research and evaluation capacity of the primary health care worker appointed to the program.
The GGT UDRH's PHCRED program was supported through input and advice from local and state-wide Advisory Committees. The local committee was composed of representatives from a range of primary health care disciplines and organisations within the Greater Green Triangle region. The PHCRED Statewide Advisory Committee was a collaboration between the GGT UDRH's PHCRED program and similar programs that run in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
The PHCRED Tri-State Program ceased on 31st December 2011 and their website is currently in caretaker mode. Therefore no further updates will be made and it will cease operating on 31st December 2012.
