Participants saw presentations on the results all 14 of the Rapid Applied Research Translation (RART) projects supported by SHP in 2018 with money from the Medical Research Future Fund.

The projects were chosen in a competitive process from more than 60 applicants across the partnership’s four local health districts. Each successful RART project was selected for its “shovel-ready” ability to be translated into clinical practice, its cross-jurisdictional collaboration between several sites, and strong prospects of delivering tangible benefits to patient care within a 12-18 month period.

“These projects represent a different kind of research,” said SHP Executive Director Garry Jennings, “one where the outcome is not just a publication, citations or the next grant. It is research that results in people doing things differently in their daily work, at every level of the health system.”
