The Integrating Health Care Planning for Health and Prosperity in North Queensland Project aims to improve the responsiveness of health services to the health needs of communities in the North Queensland region. The North Queensland region is defined in the Project as the region bounded by the five Hospital and Health Services from the Mackay region through to the Torres Strait and the Northern Territory border.

The primary research question is: How do we best develop and implement integrated place-based planning to the unique context of northern Queensland?
