The website restructure and redesign will make our work more easily accessible for researchers, policy makers and practitioners. The new structure and enhanced functionality will help users to find and instantly cross-reference related information such as resources, publications and news articles.
Co-Director Professor Lucie Rychetnik said as the Prevention Centre expanded it was important to present the true depth and breadth of the work of the Centre and its 500 plus collaborators.
“Chronic disease is our greatest health burden and the Prevention Centre has been working to build an effective, efficient and equitable system for the prevention of chronic disease since 2013. As our research, capacity building and science communication efforts have grown exponentially during this time, we are delighted to present our achievements in the new website,” she said.
“The new site includes a unique resource hub providing access to hundreds of resources and an enhanced search function allowing users to search by topic, prevention methodology or content type. We are looking forward to further expanding our research and the website will have the capacity to showcase our work into the future.”
Professor Rychetnik said the new website will also help promote the Prevention Centre’s capacity building activities for early and mid-career researchers and policymakers as the prevention emerging leaders network continues to expand in Australia.
