ACMD response to the McKeon review


We believe that the ACMD, as a project already in the advanced stages of development in one of Melbourne’s most prominent city gateways, could act as a model for future integrated health research centres across the country, acting as a forerunner to the establishment of 10-20 centres as recommended in the McKeon paper.

The ACMD project is in direct alignment with the key pillar of the McKeon framework, as detailed in theme one of the paper, to Embed Research in the Health System. The proposed Centre is to be located on site at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne and has many of the tenets of the Integrated Health Research centres.
