Healthtalk Australia

Healthtalk Australia is a consortium of researchers and universities conducting qualitative research into experiences of health and illness.

As a member of DIPEX International (along with 18 other universities or research institutions across Asia, Europe, North America and the Middle East), Healthtalk Australia is part of an interdisciplinary, international collaboration of researchers utilising narrative methods to explore health and illness experiences to create publicly available online resources and contribute to scholarly debates on patient-centred perspectives on health and illness.

Individual research projects within SGSC's Social Research in Health stream are translated into film, audio and text that make up Healthtalk Australia's unique online repository of health and illness experiences.
