The first masterclass of 2024 is for health professionals and researchers and will be held over two days – Friday, May 10 and Friday May 17 – at the Westmead Innovation Centre.

Participants in the Clinical Implementation Science Masterclass will be supported by implementation science experts to develop innovative research concepts for subsequent major grant applications.


The Implementation Science Academy’s masterclass program aims to build capacity and expertise across Sydney Health Partners, thereby better enabling health professionals and researchers within the healthcare system to:

  • solve complex problems
  • translate evidence into practice
  • tackle clinical problems that need practical solutions
  • impact on patient outcomes in the longer term.

Each year, colleagues interested in attending an implementation science masterclass are asked to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). EOIs are invited from health care professionals, researchers, and postgraduate students.

To be eligible for this Masterclass participants need to:

• be employees at a SHP partner organisation
• conduct their planned research within a clinical setting of a SHP partner organisation
• be a member of the Community of Practice (You can register here)

Generally, applicants should have demonstrated qualifications and experience in the health system, in areas such nursing, allied health, quality improvement, health services management, medicine, health economics, public health, health policy or behavioural medicine.

Concepts for research projects focus on an implementation science, quality improvement or changing practice research question. The concept can involve any topic relevant to the health system, including patient, provider, organisational or health service change.
