Research that matters by people who care
The Burwood Academy delivers research with a knowledge translation focus to improve the lives of people living with the experience of disability.
People with the lived experience of disability (PLEx) are the heart of our organisation. We constantly focus on how our research will lead to real and tangible changes for people, allowing them to live well and flourish across the lifespan.
We create a dynamic space in which PLEx, health professionals, tertiary education institutes and industry leaders link and connect in order to pose questions, challenge conventions and apply innovative thinking, teaching and learning to the science and practice of rehabilitation, and living well with long-term health conditions, or following illness or injury.
