While SWSPHN is not a research organisation, it is committed to providing an integrated and improved primary health care system to the population of South Western Sydney. Research is one of the key means by which the PHN can pioneer innovation in primary health care. By establishing a research framework, SWSPHN is better able to manage the multiple requests it receives for support and participation in research.

The SWSPHN Strategic Research Framework provides more information about the nature of the PHNs involvement in research. It can be viewed by clicking the link below:
