The Implementation Science Academy’s Masterclass is a practical introduction to the science of implementation for health professionals and health researchers.

During the Masterclass, participants are supported by implementation science experts to develop innovative research concepts for subsequent major grant applications.

The Implementation Science Academy Masterclass 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 the Masterclass are asked to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). EOIs are invited from health care professionals, researchers, and postgraduate students. First preference is given to applicants working for, or affiliated with, one of Sydney Health Partners’ member organisations.

Applicants generally 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.
