This research project brings together two research centres at the University of Wollongong; The Australian Centre for Culture, Environment, Society and Space (ACCESS) and the Australian Centre for Health Engagement, Evidence and Values (ACHEEV).
The Australian Centre for Health Engagement, Evidence and Values aims to be an international leader in deliberative democratic research in health. They conduct rigorous, independent, interdisciplinary research and actively engage with health systems, services and the public to promote understanding, acceptance and use of deliberative and other values-based methods.
Thus the experienced and dedicated team at ACCESS is strengthened by the knowledge and skills of colleagues within the public health domain. This inter-disciplinary collaboration is an acknowledgement that the issues that arise around the use of MMDs is not just one of transport or infrastructure but is also connected to ideas of health and ageing well.
