The School of Allied Health has a variety of research expertise, project and higher degree research opportunities in specialist areas of social work, physiotherapy, speech pathology and occupational therapy.
Our higher degree research candidates examine critical issues in the areas of occupational therapy, social work, physiotherapy and speech pathology. They collaborate with health professionals and industry bodies around Australia and the world.
Previous research projects include:
This National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funded project brings together a consortium of universities and industry partners to research integrating senior living with secondary school environments. ACU has two projects contributing to the overarching NHMRC funded research project.
Clinical placements are a critical component of the training for health professionals such as occupational therapists. This project was developed in response to the challenges associated with finding sufficient, suitable clinical placements that satisfy program accreditation requirements, in an increasingly competitive clinical placement market.
