Centre for Research, Evidence Management & Surveillance

The Centre for Research, Evidence Management and Surveillance (REMS) was established in 2004 and its team of epidemiologists and biostatisticians conduct research, evaluation and surveillance in population health, promote an evidence-based approach to population health programs, and support graduate and postgraduate learning in population health and epidemiology.

Current research areas are in environmental health and air pollution epidemiology, social epidemiology, neighbourhoods and health, health services for diabetes and stroke, and in the use of spatial methods and linked data for epidemiological research.

REMS program of air pollution and climate research involves investigating the effects of outdoor air pollution on birth defects, effects of bushfires on mortality and hospital admission, the effects of heatwaves on hospital admissions and emergency department visits and estimating the health benefits from reducing outdoor air pollution.

Our health services research focuses on patterns of care and outcomes for subarachnoid haemorrhage and stroke, and investigating best practice primary care for older Australians with diabetes and investigating, with both these projects using record linkage.
