The CREATE Project
Project Status: Completed
Project administered by: The University of Adelaide

The Centre of Research Excellence in Aboriginal Chronic Disease Knowledge Translation and Exchange (CREATE) was established to assist the Aboriginal health sector to collate and use existing knowledge on best practice chronic disease prevention and treatment as well as sustainable primary health care funding and service delivery models to improve the coverage and appropriateness of their services and care.

Chronic diseases make up the bulk of the life expectancy gap between non-Indigenous Australians and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Focusing on ways to improve the treatment, management and prevention of chronic diseases in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people has significant potential to reduce this gap.

CREATE has 2 key objectives:

  • Collate and synthesise existing evidence and, where necessary, develop and collate new evidence to inform guidelines, policies and/or other tools focused on improving care and outcomes in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with, or at risk of developing, a chronic disease.
  • Enhance the capacity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health service providers and researchers to conduct translational health research.
