International Centre for Allied Health Evidence

Allied Health

A global initiative in improving the quality and safety of allied health care

Our mission is to contribute to better health and wellbeing for all through evidence-based allied health care 

iCAHE works locally, nationally and globally to create new knowledge and translate evidence into safe, quality health care. We partner with researchers, clinicians, educators, policy makers, government, industry, professional and consumer groups and the broader community. 

iCAHE provides a wide range of tools, services and resources to support health practitioners, service managers, policy makers, consumer representatives and researchers translate evidence into policy and practice.

The survey takes up to X15 minutes to complete.
