The SAHMRI-based Health Policy Centre, led by Professor Caroline Miller, is on the front line of the COVID-19 response, collaborating with the Commission on Excellence and Innovation in Health and Health Translation SA to gather and assess the best evidence in response to a variety of questions about COVID-19.
Definitive findings on issues around COVID-19 are inherently difficult given this specific virus was only discovered recently. Despite this obstacle, Professor Miller’s team gathers whatever evidence is available on each topic, synthesises this evidence and presents its findings to South Australia’s COVID-19 Taskforce so it can plan and make decisions armed with the best available knowledge. The evidence updates can also be used to inform national policy and response.
Below are summaries of some of Evidence Updates the collaboration has produced so far. PDFs of each complete Evidence Update are also available.
