Over more than 7 years, Monash Partners has developed a highly successful, community-driven, research and translation partnership with the Cystic Fibrosis community. Cystic fibrosis is a chronic and complex inherited condition presenting a major health, economic and social burden.
Funds raised through an annual community event support research focused on enhancing the quality of cystic fibrosis care in hospitals and improving patient outcomes and experience. In the last 10 years, a group of dedicated volunteers has raised more than $900,000 to support high quality, prioritised research– 65kmforcf.com.au
Projects are identified through a formal, expression of interest process, and require consumer engagement, alignment to consumer and community priorities, and linkage to research and clinical leadership across Monash Partners. Scientific peer review is a two-stage process consisting of independent peer review, followed by consumer engagement to ensure the projects meet community needs.
