Health Translation SA has been formally re-accredited as a Research Translation Centre
It is great to share with you that Health Translation SA (HTSA) has been successful in our bid to be re-accredited as a NHMRC Research Translation Centre for an additional 5 years until 2027.
This has just been formally announced by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) following a rigorous review process.
Our application for re-accreditation highlighted the breadth of our work and the important role we play in driving collaborative efforts across our eleven active partners in South Australia to address unmet health system priorities and health challenges.
After first being accredited in 2015, as one of four inaugural Research Translation Centres, it is rewarding to again be recognised as an independent catalyst and broker, mobilising leadership to embed research and translation in health services across the state.
Moving into the next 5 years, HTSA will continue to foster research translation excellence and impact through priorities such as:
Catalysing and supporting impactful health service-based research projects;
Removing system blockages to research translation;
Improving the clinical research environment including Clinical Trials data sharing; and
Building research translation capability including knowledge translation, implementation science, system design, consumer engagement, health economics and quality improvement across the state, with a focus on regional SA
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the HTSA Board, our Partner organisations and staff team, whose hard work and dedication was vital for this reaccreditation and for our future impact.
HTSA can’t drive impact without engagement from clinicians, researchers, consumers and everyone in between. We exist for you and we are driven by you. I look forward to what we’ll achieve together over the next 5 years.
Executive Director, Health Translation SA
