The CRE will generate new knowledge about how scarce resources should be used to reduce healthcare associated infection in Australia. A major output will be data on the cost-effectiveness of infection control programmes to inform health care decision-makers about how to improve patient outcomes, save resources and save lives. The team of experienced chief and associate investigators will develop research capacity among seven post-doctoral researchers and ten PhD students.
