Research and Clinical Improvement
Since its inception Perth Clinic has valued the importance of Research, making sure the patients’ treatments and outcomes are always improving.
Assisting this process, Perth Clinic has had a strong partnership with the University of WA.
The Perth Clinic, Clinical Improvement Team is the driving force behind the research program.
