Behavioural sciences

The Behavioural Sciences Unit contributes behavioural insights to the Centre for Health Services Research. The Unit works collaboratively with national and international research institutions and industry groups to conduct behaviour change trials, support clinical trials of surgical or medical interventions, evaluate health interventions and develop programs that progress the field of behavioural science.

This work is led by Professor Monika Janda.

Our clinically-related areas of interest are prevention and early detection of melanomas, quality of life outcomes assessment, improving surgical care and decision making, and training of health professionals.
