What We Have Learnt

The value of health research cannot be underestimated. Health research plays a vital role in how our health care is managed, how our health policies are determined and how our health services are delivered.

What we learn from health research can determine whether health campaigns are effective and whether health treatments are safe. It can assist in identifying health needs and alert us to adverse health impacts. Most importantly it can and does play a part in improving medical knowledge and patient care.

Data linkage is an important element of health research and the ability to provide researchers with linked data in a safe and secure environment is essential.
