Medical Research Future Fund: Rapid Applied Research Translation Initiative
The COVID-19 Quarantine and Isolation Model of Care from which this resource emerged is one of five projects which form the Translational Research to Improve Health Outcomes (TOP R) grant. These projects were awarded funding by the Medical Research Future Fund: Rapid Applied Research Translation Initiative. In agreeance with the grant awarded by the Northern Territory Government, the CDU Menzies School of Medicine research team has access and permission to use the data and resources required to create this health model of quarantine care toolbox.
