We have supported our funding partners to realise many important results and outcomes for the South Australian community.
Highlights to date include:
- Having an Australian first palliative care education program incorporated into the University of Adelaide’s Bachelor of Nursing.
- The establishment of the first Australian Cystic Fibrosis rat colony, which could lead to further discoveries towards an eventual cure for the disease
- A burns safety education program for primary school students in South Australia, which has been successful in raising awareness of this issue.
- Further research and a public health campaign on the long-term, harmful consequences of methamphetamine use
Since the completion of many of these projects, the foundation has changed its direction and moved away from supporting specific programs and services. We now primarily support initiatives that improve the capability – or skills and processes – that are required to achieve valuable health outcomes.
