Strategic objectives

the Alliance aims to:

  • be instrumental in harnessing the skills, experience and research capabilities of Deakin University staff to contribute to service planning and development within the Department of Health/Department of Human Services (Barwon-South Western Region)
  • create alignment between Department of Health/Department of Human Services (Barwon-South Western Region) regional priorities and Deakin University research priorities in order to identify evidence which might inform policy and practice to build community capacity and reduce disadvantage and inequality
  • contribute to the development of major government initiatives
  • harness the opportunities that arise from the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) National Health Reform agenda
  • emphasise early intervention by focusing on local risk factors and promote a shared understanding of 'health and wellbeing'
  • develop a coordinated and strategic approach to student placements which addresses the needs of Deakin University, the Department of Health/Department of Human Services and the health and community sectors.
