CCRE Aphasia

CCRE Aphasia logo

The Centre for Clinical Research Excellence (CCRE) in Aphasia Rehabilitation was an Australia-wide research program funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) from 2009 - 2015. The program comprised of leading speech pathology researchers, clinicians and managers throughout Australia developed the Australian Aphasia Rehabilitation Pathway, a set of guidelines for person-centred aphasia services.

The CCRE in aphasia rehabilitation aimed to:

  • Communicate with people with aphasia and their families, to establish their needs, concerns and priorities;
  • Research and develop the best possible methods of rehabilitation for people with aphasia; and
  • Provide relevant and accessible guidelines for aphasia therapy, through collaboration with people with aphasia, their families and friends, speech pathologists and other health professionals.

NHMRC funding for the Centre of Research Excellence in Aphasia Research and Rehabilitation (AphasiaCRE - 2019-2023) has ensured the continuation of the work of the CCRE Aphasia. Learn more about the Aphasia CRE
