Health Translation SA aims to enable research findings to be translated into action, as quickly as possible and in a practical way, to ensure that health research can positively impact on the health of individuals and the community.
What is Health Translation?
Often there is a significant time lag between new health and medical research findings leading to changes in clinical practice, health professional education and policy.
The aim of health research translation is to “translate” research findings into practical actions that will positively impact on the health of individuals and the community at a scale and speed that can make a tangible and timely difference to their health.
The activities of Health Translation SA focuses on three areas:
We build capacity amongst academics, researchers, clinicians and policy makers to enable and drive research translation.
We influence and re-orientate systems to ensure there is the infrastructure in place to accelerate research findings into action.
