infective endocarditis Queensland (ieQ)

ieQ logoIeQ’s mission is to improve outcomes of endocarditis by advances in diagnosis, management and prevention, via the 4 pillars of education, management, research and collaboration.

ieQ is a Prince Charles Hospital initiative to establish Australia’s first clinical and research collaborative supporting improved outcomes for patients with infective endocarditis.

Established in 2017, and facilitated by a Metro North SEED Grant and extensive clinician in-kind support, the collaborative has established a multi-faceted structural platform. In May 2018, the Collaborative received additional recognition and support from The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation “The Common Good”.
