Implementation Science Grants

Implementation Science Grants

Sydney Health Partners is pleased to open applications for two grants to teams of researchers and clinicians undertaking work in the growing field of implementation science.  The grants aim to encourage teams of clinicians and researchers to develop collaborative projects that seek to implement robust evidence into practice.

Two grants, up to $25,000 each, are on offer to enable teams to undertake pilot testing of the implementation of an evidence-based intervention, program or innovation, with at least one partner Local Health District or Network.  These pilot grants are intended to help teams build translational research foundations that will lead to longer-term impacts on health services and policy.  The pilot project outcomes may help teams to apply for larger grants via funding schemes such as MRFF and TRGS.

The funded projects will commence in August 2020, and can be expended over 24 months. SHP has designed the grants with the aim to build capacity and expertise across SHP, thereby better enabling health professionals and researchers within the healthcare system to:

  • address complex problems in health systems
  • translate robust evidence into practice
  • tackle clinical problems that need practical solutions
  • test implementation of interventions in real time.
