Welcome to Game Changers

Welcome to the third edition of Game Changers.

Throughout the last 12 months we have made great strides in advancing our interprofessional education and practice and our interdisciplinary research here in the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences.

Educationally, our focus has always been to train current and future professionals in clinical and allied healthcare in a way that enables them to work effectively in teams to generate health, social, and cost benefits both for individuals and for the economy. Similarly, in research, our focus has been to foster research that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries to produce integrated solutions to some of the many complex problems in the health sciences.

This last year has seen a significant embodiment of this purpose, with the successful realisation of a number of interprofessional education and interdisciplinary research initiatives.

I am proud to share these with you here in the third edition of our annual magazine, Game Changers:

I hope you enjoy these, and many more stories about the Faculty’s achievements, in this issue of Game Changers.

Best wishes,

Professor Bruce Abernethy
Executive Dean
