CRE-DH Policy Lab Explainer

<p>The Centre of Research Excellence in Disability and Health (CRE-DH) is funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council and is comprised of academics from 5 leading universities as well as an Advisory Group of stakeholders from the disability and health sectors. The aim of the CRE-DH is to identify cost-effective policies that improve the health of working-age people with disabilities in Australia. There are 4 work programs in the CRE-DH which work together to create a multi-disciplinary, cross-sectoral exchange of knowledge in order to develop the best policy reform options.<br></p><p><br></p> <p>The Policy Lab is the name we have given to the group of experts who are participating in our 4 year Delphi Study. Policy Lab Members are expert stakeholders in disability and health policy and come from a wide range of sectors (government and non-government organisations, statutory bodies, the disability service sector, and consumer representative organisations) and geographical locations throughout Australia. <br><br>This <i>explainer</i> outlines the role of the Policy Lab in our research, how a Delphi study works, what we are trying to find out, and what the proposed outcomes will be. </p><p></p>
