Welcome to the Clinical Outcomes Research Unit

The Clinical Outcomes Research (CORe) Unit provides expertise in advanced analytics of existing or emerging clinical databases. Rather than service provision, CORe fosters collaborative relationships.

The CORe analysts are involved in conceptualisation and interpretation of research projects and work closely with principal investigators from other research teams, providing expertise in analytics, as well as insight into the subject of their research.
