Illawarra and Southern Practice Research Network (ISPRN)

The Illawarra and Southern Practice Research Network (ISPRN) is funded by the University of Wollongong's School of Medicine (SOM).

It is our vision to become a centre of excellence for the promotion of research, education and quality improvement in primary health care with a particular focus on the health of regional, rural and remote populations.

To further this aim, ISPRN has the following goals:

  • develop a sustainable primary health care research network to support the UOW's Faculty of Science Medicine and Health in undertaking high quality practice-based research
  • develop highly innovative targeted research streams in primary health care and health professional education research
  • provide high-quality research training through mentoring, workshops, online learning and Higher Degree Research student supervision.
