Melbourne Ageing Research Collaboration (MARC)

Melbourne Ageing Research Collaboration

The Melbourne Ageing Research Collaboration (MARC) is a unique collaboration of health, research, aged care and advocacy organisations working together to improve the lives of older people.

Our vision is that older people received the best possible care and support through services, programs and policies which support health and optimal quality of life.

In late 2017, MARC hosted Expert Seminars on health economics and translational research, which included two presentations from experts in their respective fields.

The seminars commenced with a presentation on Health Economics from Professor Philip Clarke from the University of Melbourne, followed by a presentation on translational research from Simon Deeming from the Hunter Medical Research Institute. 

Both presenters shared their insights into the importance of including health economic measures in research from the outset, and essential considerations in relation to designing research projects to ensure that outputs and outcomes are planned for and systematically measured to maximise research gains.

Attendees gained a practical understanding of how health economics can be incorporated into their research and translated into their clinical practice.
