Location: University of Sydney, Camperdown

The Masterclass, held on the 18th and 25th of June, will provide health professionals and researchers with the opportunity to develop their research ideas from concept to research protocol, with hands-on mentoring from leaders and experts in the field.

Attendees will be provided with the tools and skills to employ implementation science methods to solve complex health problems and impact patient outcomes through the application of research evidence into clinical practice.

Due to demand, attendance will be managed through an initial expression of interest round that closes COB Monday 17th May.  Expressions of interest are open to those with health system experience, and a feasible project concept they wish to develop across the two days. A research background is not required to attend.

As the demand for education and training is high, we would like to ensure that people are committed to participating in the Masterclass.

EOI’s to join the Masterclass are invited from health care professionals, researchers, and postgraduate students, with first preference being given to applicants from SHP Partner organisations. For more information, please see: Partners » Sydney Health Partners

Applicants should have demonstrated experience in the health system (e.g., qualifications and experience in nursing, allied health, quality improvement, health services management, medicine, health economics, public health, health policy, behavioural medicine etc.)

There is significant demand for Implementation Science education and training opportunities in Australia and there is limited capacity in the SHP Masterclass. The Masterclass aims to support and build capacity in Implementation Science while still ensuring a focus on the clinical priorities of our Partners. We want to ensure our Partners benefit from the capacity building activities we offer as part of the SHP Implementation Science program.

Signing up to become a member of the SHP Implementation Science online CoP is quick and easy. You can sign up here.

By signing up, you will get access to Implementation Science resources that will be used as part of the Masterclass. It will also provide you with an opportunity to engage with other members of the CoP to share insights and learnings from the Masterclass.

Successful EOI applicants will be given a link to formally register for the Masterclass no later than Friday 28th May 2021. We will also ask participants to complete a pre-Masterclass survey that will be sent to participants with the registration link. Relevant pre-reading materials will also be sent to participants prior to the Masterclass.

The Masterclass is offered free of charge; however, registered participants who do not attend on the day will be asked to pay a $40 cost-recovery charge for catering. This will not apply to participants who provide a minimum of 48 hours’ cancellation notice, or where exceptional circumstances apply. Participants are responsible for arranging and paying for their own travel to and from the Masterclass venue. SHP is not able to provide funding to cover locum replacement for clinical days or to reimburse participants for leave from their substantive role. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided on the days of the Masterclass.
