Our Research

We conduct research into psychosocial and behavioural aspects of cardiovascular disease. Our studies involve both patients with cardiovascular disease and health professionals who work with these patients.

We have a particular focus on translational research: We use our research findings to develop and evaluate programs to help patients and their families, particularly to assist with emotional and behavioural recovery after heart attack and heart surgery. Results from our research studies also inform our training programs and, in turn, improve the care offered to patients across Australia and internationally.  

Our major research programs are: anxiety, distress and depression; childhood heart disease; supporting patient self-management; screening and assessment; sleep; physical activity and sedentary behaviour; and positive psychology.
