USYD and HammondCare research announce partnership

The University of Sydney and leading aged, dementia and palliative care charity HammondCare today announced a formal partnership aimed at shaping the sector through collaboration on research, education and social impact.

The Memorandum of Understanding cements a long-standing collaboration between the two organisations and signifies the important role of research in informing evidence-based, best practice care in health and aged care.

Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Professor Mark Scott AO said the University is proud to be partnering with HammondCare.

“We support HammondCare’s vision for research-driven innovation in the health and aged care sector. We know that the work of our researchers and our students will not only contribute to, but shape how that is achieved and its impact on the wider sector.”

HammondCare CEO Mike Baird AO said the partnership recognises HammondCare’s thought leadership in aged, dementia and palliative care.

“This will support us to reach our ambition to set the global standard of relationship-based care, for people with complex needs and to increase our care for those that others won’t or can’t.”
