The Surgical Outcomes Research Centre (SOuRCe) was established in 2002 as a not-for-profit conjoint academic surgical research unit of the Sydney Local Health District and The University of Sydney. Headed by Professor Michael Solomon (Colorectal Surgeon at RPAH and Professor of Surgical Research with the University of Sydney), the primary goal of SOuRCe is to “promote an evidence-based approach to improve clinical practice and to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients”.
Covering all surgical specialties, SOuRCe has established and continues to develop a renowned research profile of surgical outcomes research. Our work includes developing and improving new surgical techniques, enhancing quality of life and patient-reported outcomes, and implementing evidence-based practice.
Our primary aim is to promote an evidence-based approach to improve clinical practice and to achieve the best possible outcomes for surgical patients.
