OVERVIEW The Faculty of Health is an industry leader that educates professionals for a range of health related areas, con-ducts research and is actively engaged in continuing education and community service.

The Faculty has more than 5000 students enrolled in undergraduate and postgraduate programs which are delivered through five discipline-based schools of Human Movement Studies, Nursing, Optometry, Psychology and Counselling, and Public Health.

The School of Human Movement Studies offers pro-grams that respond to the increasing community aware-ness of health, exercise, well-being, and fitness. A degree in Human Movement Studies equips graduates with the knowledge and skills for an active career in physical edu-cation, health education, rehabilitation, weight manage-ment, or exercise and sports science.

The School of Nursing is Queensland's oldest provider of nursing education. Always at the cutting-edge of its field, the School offers the latest in clinical facilities and equipment, and a wide range of local, rural, and overseas opportunities for practical placements. Nursing graduates go on to work in a range of areas, including and beyond the traditional hospital ward. The School offers an under-graduate program in nursing, as well as specialised post-graduate coursework and research programs.

The School of Optometry is the only optometry training facility in Queensland and one of three in Australia. As such, Optometry graduates are always in demand. The optometry degree prepares graduates for entry into the professional workforce and for Australia-wide registration. Students apply their knowledge through supervised clini-cal practice both in the School's purpose-built public op-tometry clinic and in the community. Postgraduate re-search programs are offered by the School at Masters and PhD level.

The School of Psychology and Counselling is located on QUT's spacious bushland campus at Carseldine. The School offers excellent teaching, technology and re-search facilities for its undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Programs provide graduates with the opportu-nity to gain practical qualifications that are well regarded in the community. The Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology) is a three-year degree program that pre-pares graduates for further studies in psychology and for employment in a number of fields. Graduates aiming for professional registration may seek admission to a fourth year of study in either the Bachelor of Behavioural Sci-ence (Honours Psychology) or the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology. The School's postgraduate offerings in-clude Masters in Counselling, Clinical Psychology and Psychology (Educational and Developmental), and Graduate Diplomas or Certificates in Psychology and Road Safety. Studies can also be undertaken at doctor-ate level (PhD and Doctor of Psychology (Clinical)).

The School has a Family and Counselling Clinic, which is open to the public, and a research centre in Road Safety and Accident Prevention.

The School of Public Health is the most diverse of the Faculty's schools, offering undergraduate majors in po-diatry, nutrition and dietetics, health information man-agement, health services management, paramedic and public health. A range of articulated postgraduate pro-grams is also offered in a number of specialised fields

such as environmental health, health promotion, occupa-tional health and safety, risk management, health ser-vices management, public health and health science.

Staff in the Faculty maintain excellent ties with the health industry and work closely with national and international health and welfare organisations. These industry ties ensure that the Faculty's programs deliver relevant skills and respond rapidly to new and emerging needs in health education in an era of advancing health technology.

The Faculty of Health is primarily based at QUT's Kelvin Grove campus, with the School of Psychology and Coun-selling located at Carseldine campus in the northern sub-urbs of Brisbane. At Kelvin Grove campus, two purpose-built complexes house state-of-the-art facilities including:

� teaching clinics for podiatry, optometry and hu-man movement studies (children's activity and weight management programs, balance and gait assessment, health and fitness appraisals, and exercise prescriptions)

� a nursing clinical practice unit with operational hospital rooms and a clinical suite

� Human Movement laboratories for biomechan-ics, exercise physiology, motor control, and func-tional anatomy

� student computer laboratories with the latest in general and health-related software

� multimedia lecture theatres and tutorial rooms � fully equipped research laboratories.

At Carseldine, a Family Therapy and Counselling Clinic provides supervised clinical experience for Counselling students.

RESEARCH CENTRES Centre for Health Research

Research in the Faculty of Health is multidisciplinary, fostering collaboration and groundbreaking research across a number of health-related areas. The Faculty of Health is also involved in the Institute of Health and Bio-medical Innovation (IHBI) which integrates Australia's most creative minds in Health, Science and Biomedical Engineering research. The key strengths of the Faculty of Health are:

Ageing The effect of an ageing population has been identified as a global health and social issue. Research questions re-

lated to both the impact of age-related disease and suc-cessful ageing underpin current research projects in the Faculty of Health. Research activities in this area relate to community and residential care; dementia; pain and symptom management; palliative care; ocular disease and the effects of vision impairment; foot health; gait; mobility and posture analysis; disorders of movement; injury in older people; social identity; families; mental health; nutrition; cognition and cognitive/memory deficit; the older driver; the older worker; and active ageing.

Physical Activity The role of physical activity in the maintenance and resto-ration of health is a significant emerging area. There is increasing evidence of the role of physical activity in the prevention, treatment and management of a range of chronic disorders. Research in this area is aimed at the promotion of physical activity during childhood and ado-lescence and the prescription of exercise in the context of chronic disease, and at community-based health behav-iour interventions. Research into prevention and rehabili-tation of occupational and sporting injuries requires as-sessment of biomechanical, physiological, metabolic, neurological, sensory and psychological factors, concen-trating on high risk groups and prevention of older peo-ples' injuries. Other research into a range of disorders including neurological injury, vision loss, emotional or behavioural disorders in children, peripheral arterial dis-ease, and sleep apnoea is also being conducted.

Human Health and Wellbeing Research activities in this area relate to health services, policy and management, and population health. Areas of strength include the management of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, coronary heart dis-ease, and other emerging health conditions. These in-clude quality of life and resilience; improving the care of hospitalised patients and managing early discharge; health outcomes for disadvantaged populations; health-promoting schools and early childhood environments; and prevention and management of mental health problems. Other research areas include environmental health, child maltreatment awareness and prevention, development and implementation of nutrition assessment and screen-ing tools, and evaluation of nutritional status.

Human Behaviour Research in human behaviour embraces fundamental social, cognitive and developmental processes in psy-chology. This includes research in attitude theory, group behaviour and decision making, child and adolescent development, memory, psycholinguistics, and the devel-opment of reading. Opportunities include research in ad-dictive behaviour, eating, exercise, organic mental disor-der, and health promotion. A range of research methods has also informed the development of psychological therapies and counselling, including rehabilitation, treat-ment of psychological trauma, anxiety disorders and de-pression, narrative therapy, family therapy, and counsel-ling supervision.

Vision Vision research provides an important resource for the community, industry, government and eye-care profes-sions. There are a number of areas of collaboration with research activities in the other programs and across fac-ulties deriving from the main research activities in this program which are visual optics, including aberrations of the eye and their correction; lens design and perform-ance; myopia and optics of the eye; visual performance studies, including vision rehabilitation, vision and driving.

and vision and falls; and clinical research into the ocular surface, effects of refractive surgery, colour vision and electroretinography.

Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety (CARRS-Q)

Accident and Injury Prevention Research Road safety and workplace accident prevention are key areas of research that have already led to the successful implementation of behaviour intervention and education programs. The Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety–Queensland (CARRS–Q) is a major collaborative research centre established as a joint venture initiative of the Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC) and QUT. The Centre was created to address the enormous human, economic and social costs resulting from road crashes. It has expanded its research scope to include the broader area of injury prevention with a particular interest in youth and risk-taking behaviours.

The Centre's charter is to identify, assess and initiate innovative priority-driven research and teaching programs leading to the development and implementation of strate-gies to improve safety on roads, in workplaces and in communities. The Centre aims to strengthen and broaden research and intervention development in the areas of vulnerable road users; illegal and high-risk behaviours; the human behaviour and technology interface; school and community-based road safety education; and work-place safety.

Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation

How does your mind and body work?

Can you protect yourself from injury or illness?

What are the health care and treatment options?

The answers are not always available. Through research, IHBI is developing solutions that were previously unimag-inable.

The Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) integrates Australia’s most creative minds in health, sci-ence and biomedical engineering.

IHBI takes a novel approach to solving health problems where there are no barriers and nothing is set in stone. IHBI researchers work at the interfaces between tradi-tional scientific disciplines to solve the issues affecting the wellbeing of Australia and neighbouring communities.

Opening in 2006, IHBI is based in a progressive $70-million facility at the Kelvin Grove Urban Village in Bris-bane, Australia. IHBI is the result of collaboration be-tween QUT, The Atlantic Philanthropies and the Queen-sland Government.

IHBI researchers, students and professional staff are organised into flexible teams able to apply their collective expertise to critical health issues.

Postgraduate training is a core element of IHBI’s mission and the Institute offers world-class career opportunities across the spectrum of health, science and biomedical engineering research. Postgraduate students enrol in QUT through one of the faculties and are then able to conduct research through IHBI according to the nature of their projects. The research programs at IHBI are organ-ised into six research domains including:

Cells and Tissue Domain

Investigating and restoring functionality to damaged hu-man tissue: skin, muscles, bones, joints and eyes.

Tropical Crops and Biocommodities Domain Growing plants that produce beneficial materials for hu-man nutrition and therapy.

Vision Improvement Caring for the eyes by advancing the techniques used to correct and maintain clear sight.

Medical Device Domain Developing technologies to assist practitioners diagnose illness and injuries more accurately.

Human Health and Wellbeing Domain Exploring critical health issues (eg ageing and chronic disease) and designing better community healthcare op-tions.

Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation Analysing and modifying human behaviour to avoid dan-gerous situations and developing strategies for damage recovery.

The Institute’s business is promoting health and biomedi-cal innovations in the community as well as in industry. The commercial outcomes of IHBI research generate new products and companies. IHBI facilitates the transfer of

New knowledge into public policy, which leads to an im-proved health care industry. For more information visit www.ihbi.qut.edu.au
