Research at Tweddle

Tweddle Child and Family Health Service has been providing evidence based, clinical interventions for many years and recognizes the importance of developing evidence based interventions to enhance the wellbeing of children and their parents.

Since its inception, Tweddle has a history of evaluation and continuous improvement in service delivery. Its commitment to quality and research has been clearly exhibited by actively participating in research projects and engaging external consultants to review its practices and approaches to service delivery.

Tweddle Child and Family Health Service is dedicated to enhancing the wellbeing of 0-4 aged children and their families. We are committed to supporting staff and higher degree students involved in research activities by creating research opportunities from questions raised from service/practice delivery, advances in the field of child and family field and government policies.

Tweddle research projects will meet Federal and State legislation, research methodology standards, DHS and university ethic guidelines as well as organisation policies and procedures.
