Variations in Health Service Use

While Australia has universal health care, because of factors such as a mixture of public and private funding, out-of-pocket expenses, gaps in services and variability in availability and application of evidence-based guidelines, there is considerable variation in healthcare. Our program of work examines variation in use of health services using linked data, with a particular, but not exclusive, focus on socioeconomic inequalities in care. Dr Korda is currently conducting a range of projects to explore these questions. Please contact her for furthur information.
