Research Translation Project

Implementation, scale up and impact

Projects should focus on the ‘how to’ of implementing health interventions into practice, including specifying implementation strategies to deliver interventions, or to scale up or scale out interventions to new populations. The projects may also address how research impact can be assessed at health, economic or societal levels.

Applicants whose project fits in this theme will seek to upskill in methods from disciplines such as implementation science, improvement sciences or program evaluation and could extend to specialist areas including (but not limited to) health economics, health informatics or clinical epidemiology.

Health equity and access

Project proposals should focus on how to reduce variations in the delivery of healthcare by actively testing strategies in the clinic or community. Applicants should outline a proposal about how to tailor interventions for use in specific clinical settings or with priority groups.

Applicants whose project fits in this theme may have an interest in consumer and community involvement, Indigenous health or the social or economic determinants that result in poor patient outcomes. The projects could include topics such as increasing uptake of proven interventions, de-implementing ineffective interventions or tailoring interventions to improve access or uptake by local populations.

Application Information

Applicants must be employed by an SHP Partner organisation at the time of lodging an application. SHP welcomes expressions of interest from suitably experienced:

  • Clinicians (from disciplines such as allied health, genetic counselling, medical specialities, midwifery, nursing, pharmacy, public health and other relevant disciplines) who work in clinical settings
  • Other healthcare professionals (e.g. health service managers, program or project managers)
  • Researchers (e.g. behavioural science, clinical epidemiology, health economics, health services, indigenous health, public health and other health-focused research disciplines).

Experience in implementing research projects is highly desirable but does not have to be at a leadership level.

Applicants with less than 15 years’ experience (educational qualifications or workplace experience) are preferred. Applicants who have experienced career disruption or have relative to opportunity considerations (no time limitations) are welcome to apply.
