Health Translation SA aims to accelerate research findings into healthcare practice and policy and increase whole-of-system research translation capacity to improve the health of all South Australians.
What is Health Translation?
Every day South Australian, national and international researchers make important scientific discoveries and breakthroughs in how to prevent and treat disease and promote health. The process of ensuring these discoveries are turned into cutting edge, reliable and safe healthcare for our community is known as health research translation.
The activities of Health Translation SA focuses on three areas:
We fund a range of priority translation projects:
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.
