Our Research

Wesley Medical Research has a strong focus on applied medical research – research which show results and improves patient care and their quality of life within 5 years after the initiation of the research project.

Applied Medical Research: Advantages & Disadvantages

Our focus on applied medical research has its advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, applied research is no doubt more efficient and economical. On the other hand, it presents challenges in winning research grants and funding due to the smaller number of scientific publications resulted.

For these reasons, WMR would like to extend sincere thanks to all our supporters who see the value and community benefits in WMR’s applied medical research since 1994. Without your support, continuous advancements and improvements in diagnostics, treatment options, management techniques and recovery pathways through research would not have been possible!

Recent Research Achievements

  • A simple algorithm was developed for key decision makers in cardiac surgery to determine when to use and recommend TXA, a blood-clot promoting agent, to patients so the benefits outweigh the risks.
  • Improved the physical and mental health, and quality of life for patients with Type 2 Diabetes, in particular those in rural and remote areas where health service access is difficult and limited, by developing and trialling the OnTrack Diabetes program.
