Institute for Health Research

The Institute for Health Research (IHR), based on the Fremantle Campus, is one of three research institutes established by The University of Notre Dame Australia to provide leadership in collaborative research initiatives.

Drawing on the clinical expertise within the Schools of Health Science (biomedicine, outdoor recreation, health and physical education, preventive health, and exercise and sport science), Medicine, Nursing & Midwifery and Physiotherapy, the IHR seeks to facilitate and promote health-related research at a higher education level.

In addition to developing research capacity within Notre Dame, the IHR also seeks to foster interdisciplinary, cross-Campus and cross-institutional research partnerships to develop research projects that support government policy and clinical practice that improve outcomes for:

  • individuals (mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing)
  • communities, and
  • the overall healthcare system.
