Heart Research Centre

About Heart Research Centre

The Heart Research Centre conducts research into the social, psychological and behavioural aspects of the prevention of cardiovascular disease.

Findings are used to develop, implement and evaluate interventions to improve the quality of life of patients, families and communities and to encourage healthy behaviours in order to reduce premature disability and death from cardiovascular disease.

Results of clinical studies aim to improve the delivery of health services for cardiac patients and their families. Applied research and the training of practitioners in the field are also important aspects of the Centre’s work.
