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”.
