San Foundation Research Grant

San Foundation provides funding of up to $20,000 for a research project that will showcase AHCL research leading to improvements in patient experiences, patient outcomes and / or health systems. The research project must be clearly aligned to the mission, vision and values of AHCL and our research priority areas:

  • Living with Cancer
  • Healthy Living
  • Optimising Healthcare

Previous recipient & finalists

In 2023 the grant was awarded to a project titled 'The introduction of a new model of care in the acute care setting in people with dementia: pre and post intervention analysis.' The project aims to explore whether patient outcomes are improved by caring for patients with dementia in a physical environment that better caters for their needs, and will be led by an AHCL cognition nurse and a Geriatric Medicine physician.

There were two other projects that were awarded finalists certificates.

  • The Gut Feelings Project: an innovative way to reduce the burden of common gastrointestinal symptoms in the community
  • The DENETTE Study (Definitive neoadjuvant endocrine therapy for non-metastatic breast cancer in the elderly): Short term response to help predict long term outcomes
