The Home Modification Information (HMinfo) Clearinghouse, established in 2002, is an information service tasked with collating, reviewing and creating the evidence base for best practice in modification of the home environment to support people with problems in self care, participation and autonomy.
HMinfo is located at the City Futures Research Centre within the Faculty of the Built Environment at UNSW. HMinfo is a multi-disciplinary team comprised of academics and professionals of diverse backgrounds including industrial design, sociology, gerontology, economics, geography, planning, architecture, government policy and occupational therapy.
HMinfo publishes evidence-based literature reviews, occasional papers, summary bulletins and factsheets, drawing on research about how particular built environments (i.e. products, materials and services) impact human autonomy and wellbeing outcomes. HMinfo also provides support to practitioners through its General, Industry and Occupational Therapist (OT) forums and OT mailing list.
