Healthy Ageing

The scope of this theme presents research in health and wellbeing throughout the course of life. The CRN initiative funds two major research projects undertaken by Western Australian research collaborations between Notre Dame and its local partner universities.

The focus areas in Healthy Ageing research at Notre Dame includes the prevention of falls–related injury in elderly people to enhance health and quality of life, and the development of interventions to reduce the impact of chronic motor dysfunction on the physical and mental health of individuals at any age.
