Lives Lived Well are committed to providing the highest possible quality of care while ensuring that the funding we receive is allocated toward reliable and proven treatments.
Having programs and services that are backed by effective evidence-based practice is our utmost priority and to guarantee this we undertake and continually monitor emerging research in the alcohol, drug and mental health literature.
Our research agenda is underpinned by a formal partnership with the University of Queensland, with Professor Leanne Hides acting as the inaugural Lives Lived Well Chair in Alcohol, Drugs and Mental Health. Professor Hides works in partnership with Dr. Julaine Allan, a highly experienced clinician and researcher, to coordinate our research portfolio.
Senior Lives Lived Well staff work in conjunction with UQ researchers as the LLW Working Research Group to assist Dr. Allan in planning, vetting and managing projects and disseminating research findings across Lives Lived Well.
While we facilitate our own research, we also support others to undertake projects aimed at improving alcohol and drug and mental health practice. If you would like to engage LLW in a research proposal, please contact Dr. Allan via [email protected] and she can talk you through the relevant opportunities and processes.
