Our Mission

Our mission is to assist organisations to implement evidence-based strategies, using a knowledge base of effective chronic disease prevention.

We seek to:

  • Generate new knowledge to optimise strategies to improve health outcomes;
  • Develop translation resources based on evidence-based, optimised prevention strategies;
  • Promote effective transfer of research outcomes into health policy and practice;
  • Develop the health and medical research workforce by providing opportunities to advance the training of new researchers and;
  • Facilitate collaboration between researchers and health practitioners, educators and related organisations.

In collaboration with our partners, NCOIS works towards closing the gap between evidence and practice in chronic disease prevention.
