About Health Sciences

Health sciences research is the 'multidisciplinary field of scientific investigation that studies how social factors, financing systems, organisational structures and processes, health technologies and personal behaviours affect access to health care, the quality and cost of health care and ultimately our health and well-being. Its' research domains are individuals, families, organisations, institutions, communities and populations.' (Academy Health, 2000)
