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.

Dr Nicole Rankin, Director of the Implementation Science Program at Sydney Health Partners, says an aim of the masterclass is to upskill and build capacity of clinician-researchers.

“We particularly welcome applications from those clinician-researchers in early stages of their careers, who are looking for a structured approach to implementing evidence into their clinical practice,” she said.

“We hope that participants will come out of the Masterclass not only with a better understanding of implementation science, but with a fully-fledged project focused on research translation that can be submitted for funding.”

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.

Expressions of interest are now open and are due by COB Monday 17th May. Applications are open to all members of the SHP Implementation Science Community of Practice (if you’re not a member, sign up now – its free!), with priority given to members of SHP Partner organisations.
