Translating research into products and services that improve people’s lives is rarely a linear process. Rather it is dynamic and iterative, and takes place within a complex system. Successful research translation requires a diverse skill-set beyond traditional research skills.
There are many online options available below which allow you to upskill whilst physically distancing.
Implementing Evidence into Practice
Every day researchers make important discoveries and breakthroughs in how to prevent and treat disease and promote health. It is critical that these research findings are converted into new drugs and treatments, cutting edge medical devices and better healthcare services.
Partnering with Consumers in Research
At the heart of successful research translation are strong and productive partnerships. Partnership with health consumers and community can contribute greatly to research – ensuring research addresses the needs of those using healthcare services, and improves health outcomes.
Communicating with Impact
Communicating with impact is essential to all health and medical research – especially when it comes to research translation, which is built on effective partnerships. Establishing those partnerships requires the ability to tailor your research key messages to a variety of stakeholders.
Research translation ensures that research delivers positive impact to society. Help your work to benefit society and the economy. Learn what research impact is, how to create it, measure it and communicate it.
Knowledge synthesis provides the evidence to support informed decision making in healthcare – including evidence-based practice, health technology assessment, guideline development, and policy decisions. It is the process whereby all research evidence and opinion relevant to a specific topic is systematically analysed, appraised and recommendations made.
