Welcome to the Surgical Outcomes Research Centre
SOuRCe, established in 2002, is a conjoint multidisciplinary research unit of the Sydney Local health District and the University of Sydney.
This unit, with a focus on improving surgical outcomes, is the first of its kind in Australia and one of just a handful of such research units in the world, leading research in these areas:
- the methodology of randomised controlled trials and alternate evaluative trial designs
- outcomes assessment for surgical patients
- health services research
- economic analysis and quality of life studies in surgery.
The primary goal of SOuRCe is to promote an evidence-based approach to improving clinical practice and achieving the best possible outcomes for patients.
