The Bolton Clarke Research Institute is our own research and innovation hub, and has forged a reputation both nationally and internationally for high impact community health and aged care research. By translating our research into policy and practice, we help improve services for our clients and the community, and enable more people to gain greater independence, quality of life and choice with regard to their healthcare. Ultimately, our research aims to support our clients’ ability to lead fuller and more satisfying lives.
Our approach to research is to identify pressing health needs, and co-design studies with our clients and families, nurses and carers to understand these needs and find ways to resolve them. We do this by listening to our clients and expert clinicians, and by leading research collaborations with national and international researchers, universities and centres in the areas of ageing, chronic illness, mental health and disability.
Our diverse areas of expertise include healthy ageing, chronic illness management, dementia, mental health, falls prevention and medications management.
The Bolton Clarke Research Institute comprises a multi-disciplinary team of research fellows and officers, and is underpinned by a strong governance framework including an ethics committee.
