The following unit is now available as an Elective: 

WARC5001 Research Translation, Impact and Evaluation

Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Julie Redfern Session: Semester 2 Classes: online lectures, discussion forums, video tutorials Assumed knowledge: This unit of study is best suited to students who have a solid understanding of research methodology and clinical trials. It is not limited to but is ideally suited to people with a clinical background. Assessment: online quizzes (10%); case-based discussion boards (20%); research proposal (40%); evaluation assignment (30%) Mode of delivery: Online

To optimise healthcare delivery, we need evidence-based strategies to enable research translation and to assess impact. This unit of study will teach these skills including fostering and maintaining stakeholder engagement, pragmatic study design, cost effectiveness analysis, recognising and managing barriers and enablers to implementation and post-research translation. Participation in case-based discussions and preparation of a research proposal will enable students to develop the skills to enhance impact and hasten adoption of research into routine care. This unit of study will have a practical focus with the aim of facilitating students to deliver impactful research within the clinical setting.
