The DCU Healthy Living Centre Ltd (HLC) is a new and innovative health space which aims to provide healthcare services to the internal and external population. The HLC is developed around the concept of academic practice, that is, the intentional and unique integration of clinical care, education and research in an academic setting.
The purpose of the HLC is to contribute to the advancement of knowledge underpinning healthcare practice and to contribute to the shape and structure of healthcare innovation. Expertise from within the School of Nursing and the Faculty of Health and Science will be utilised as new models of healthcare practice are developed in the provision of accessible, equitable, innovative and cost effective healthcare services within a quality healthcare environment.
The HLC aims to address priority needs and gaps as identified through a process of consultation with local GPs, the acute sector, and primary care providers.
