From bench to the bedside

As part of a major research program developed in partnership with Gold Coast Health, Gold Coast Hospital Foundation is committed to funding cutting-edge health research to address chronic health conditions such as sepsis in children, motor neurone disease, ICU and trauma.


Funding for health research projects

Researchers began a study in 2018 to find a test to help with earlier diagnosis of sepsis in children. Funds raised in 2019 for the next clinical trial will help researchers perform one of the largest randomised-controlled trials on early resuscitation of children with sepsis. The innovative approach will test two interventions with greatest promise to improve patient outcomes. The study will capture functional outcomes and quality of life, consumer engagement, and sepsis-related costs.
