Australian Health Review

The Australian Health Review (AHR) is the peer reviewed journal of the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA) and is published six times per year. It explores major national and international health issues and questions. Topics include all aspects of health policy and management, healthcare delivery systems, clinical programs, health financing and other matters of interest to those working in health care. It also publishes new research from practitioners - managers and clinicians - and reports of breakthrough projects that demonstrate better ways of delivering care.

The views expressed in the AHR are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent those of our organisation or the journal's publisher, CSIRO.
