Organisation and management

The Research Partnership is underpinned by a contract negotiated between the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District and University of Wollongong.

The Executive Leads are:

  • Professor Leonard Arnolda for the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District - Clinical Director, Health and Medical Research
  • Professor Kathy Eagar for the University of Wollongong – Director, Australian Health Services Research Institute


The Executive Leads report to the ISLHD Board six monthly.

The CHRISP Executive Steering Committee is the peak governance body for the CHRISP Research Partnership and is responsible for strategic and executive management, including approval of all policies, processes and research projects.

The CHRISP Project Reference Group advised and reported to the CHRISP Executive Steering Committee on all data and research matters. The committee was part of Phase 1 (the establishment phase) and has now reached a natural conclusion.

The CHRISP Data Policy provides the overarching framework, principles and processes that govern all matters related to data, including data ownership, access, submission, linkage, storage, security, disposal, quality, reporting and publication.
