Centre of Research Excellence

Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) in Translational Research in Musculoskeletal Pain


The CRE will conduct implementation research into the effectiveness of innovative models of care for OA and LBP to address the evidence-practice gaps. It will provide a coordinated multidisciplinary research approach to the problem, a more structured framework around which training and mentoring in implementation research can occur and for researchers and stakeholders to collaborate, as well as a platform to leverage additional funds and resources.
