The Centre of Research Excellence in Patient Safety (CRE-PS) was established in late 2005 with the objective of developing national research capability and capacity that in turn improve patient safety. CRE-PS designs, conducts, promotes, and promulgates high quality multi-centre research to improve quality, safety, efficiency and effectiveness of health care for Australians. We have undertaken research and patient safety initiatives in each state and territory, and internationally. Our research has focussed on four main areas: the use of data to monitor quality of care, improving information transfer, reducing medication error and patient safety.
The Centre of Research Excellence in Patient Safety (CRE-PS) is a part of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
