Research Translation has become an integral part of health and medical research as pressures increase to demonstrate the impact research will have on health outcomes. However, there is often confusion around what this means, why it is important, and how it can be incorporated when designing and communicating research.
To help us better understand some of the complexities of this topic, Research Australia is working with our Foundation member, BUPA Foundation, on a Research Translation Breakfast and workshop event. Research Australia will be represented by our CEO, Nadia Levin, who will be presenting on the day and a number of our members who will be in attendance. We encourage you to follow the activity on the day through our Twitter account at @ResAustralia.
The breakfast will include the awarding of the Bupa Health Foundation Emerging Health Researcher Award, and we would like to wish the finalists all the best of luck. We are pleased to note that all finalists for this year’s awards come from Research Australia member organisations:
- Dr Amanda McCullough, Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice, Bond University
- Dr Bridianne O’Dea, Black Dog Institute
- Dr Emma Beckett, The University of Newcastle, School of Medicine and Public Health
- Dr Jaquelyne Hughes, Menzies School of Health Research and Royal Darwin Hospital
- Dr Rae-Anne Hardie, Australian Institute of Health Innovation, Macquarie University
- Dr Thushara Perera, Bionics Institute
Research Australia is pleased to be working with one of our Foundation Members on such a significant event, stay tuned to the Research Australia website for a recap on the day’s activities.
