The Hopkins Centre

Research for Rehabilitation and Resilience

The Hopkins Centre (THC) is leading translation research nationally in the field of rehabilitation and severe disability renowned for our research methods that bring service users, clinicians and researchers together to develop practical solutions that promote measurable improvements for recovery and resilience.
At THC our membership of citizens and service practitioners drive our unique research in evidence based practice for support for people in rehabilitation and with severe disability. It is through the lens of our three key research streams: positive environments and communities, therapeutic interventions and practices, policy, governance and service systems, that we bring this holistic approach to ensure that the systems and support structures for people with severe disability are there throughout their life. 

The Centre has several hubs in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Ipswich and Logan. The combination of these locations facilitate opportunities for knowledge exchange and research excellence, building sustainable collaborations between experienced rehabilitation clinicians, expert academic researchers, community practitioners, policy-makers, citizens and service-users.
