This week we are really excited to introduce Public Health Insight.
Over the last 13 years our Public Health Evidence and Knowledge Translation team has been involved in a significant number of knowledge translation, implementation science and evidence related research initiatives with a range of stakeholders. However, what we probably have the greatest profile in is the international leadership of the Cochrane Public Health Group. This group is based within the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health and linked closely to the Australasian Cochrane Centre at Monash University.
Given the breadth of our work, we have recognized that we need to create a profile that better communicates our skills and expertise including collaborating and leading on evidence and knowledge translation related research, training, consultancies and evidence reviews. With the support of VicHealth, we have invested in a wide consultation process with stakeholders to identify ways in which we could strengthen our profile and brand.
Our new name, brand and profile is now Public Health Insight. Further information on the group and our work program can be found on our new website: pgh.unimelb.edu.au/publichealthinsight
Our new brand better reflects our range of activities and services. It also reflects the philosophy and strategic goals of what we have done, and what we are keen to continue to evolve – making our services and activities clearer. As Public Health Insight, our vision remains the same: evidence informed decisions leading to better and more equitable public health. It is the way we strive to achieve this that defines us: inclusive research for healthier decisions.
Our key research services will continue to be:
- Public Health Evidence reviews
- Managing and editing Cochrane reviews
- Knowledge Translation research and action
Public Health Insight will incorporate the CPHG and maintain its strong links with the Jack Brockhoff Child Health and Wellbeing Program at the University of Melbourne, and with the Cochrane Collaboration. We are really excited to embark on this new chapter and we encourage any researchers working in this area to get in touch, as we would welcome opportunities to explore new research questions.
