The aim of SPHERE is to integrate outstanding research, top quality education and professional practices across partner organisations to improve health outcomes, deliver better healthcare, generate economic benefits, and be a magnet for recruitment and retention of staff and investment in health and research. SPHERE has four key objectives:
- Strong alignment between partners that result in improved care and health outcomes for local populations.
- Enhanced educational and learning experiences in a variety of clinical and non-clinical settings.
- Research discovery and rapid translation of those discoveries and innovations to patient and population benefit.
- Strong relationships with industry and local communities to improve health and generate wealth.
SPHERE will direct funding at building interdisciplinary teams and facilitating cross cutting thematic efforts traversing research, education, clinical care and industry links that will tackle major health questions.
