Knowledge Synthesis Hub
Welcome to the CRE HiPP Knowledge Synthesis Hub
CRE HiPP will generate vast new knowledge and consolidate existing knowledge via quantitative and qualitative methodologies, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, and audits of current guidelines and best practice across each of the Research Streams and the Research Theme.
This knowledge will be presented as evidence summaries, lay fact sheets of our guidelines and published peer reviewed papers, and will be centralised here in the Knowledge Synthesis Hub.
Health in Preconception, Pregnancy and Postpartum Workplace Portal
CRE HiPP Chief Investigators, Professors Helen Skouteris and Andrew Hills, along with early and mid career researchers, Seonad Madden (PhD student), Dr Briony Hill Dr Claire Blewitt and Kiran Ahuja, have worked with UTAS and MacKillop Family Services over the last 2 years to pioneer a Health in Preconception, Pregnancy and Postpartum (HiPPP) Workplace Portal. The HiPPP Workplace Portal has been co-designed to provide a “one stop shop” for women, men, people and families to source evidence based information about lifestyle health and maternity/parental leave policies and practices during these reproductive life phases.
