Description

The Centre for Research on Ageing, Health and Wellbeing (CRAHW) was established in January 2012, drawing together staff with expertise in ageing, mental health and life course research. CRAHW is comprised of academic staff, doctoral students, professional staff and visiting or adjunct fellows. CRAHW also hosts a node of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research and a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Dementia Collaborative Research Centre for Early Diagnosis and Prevention.


Aims

The goal of the CRAHW is to conduct innovative translational research to improve understanding of ways to optimise the well-being of individuals and communities across the lifecourse.

Main research areas

CRAHW research is based on methodological and theoretical traditions, which focus on adult development and ageing, such as psychology, sociology and epidemiology. The research considers physical, mental and cognitive wellbeing, the role of the social and interpersonal contexts, and emphasizes translation of research findings into practice and public policy, working closely with government agencies and the community sector. CRAHW research also places a premium on rigorous statistical and analytic methods, particularly longitudinal data analysis, and regular hosts seminars and workshops, which are a focus of capacity building for the Australian research community.
