Sydney Cancer Partners has been selected as one of six Clinical Academic Groups, supporting research translation
We are thrilled to be selected as one of the first Clinical Academic Groups (CAGs) and to be part of a new era for Sydney Health Partners.
The purpose of these groups is to deliver a program of activities which supports more rapid and systemic translation of research evidence into improved clinical practice and addresses the health and medical priorities of SHP’s health service partners.
Sydney Cancer Partners is committed to form multi-disciplinary networks and build capacity for research translation, especially among early and mid-career researchers. Where translational research enables the movement of knowledge from bench to bedside to community, research translation fundamentally bridges the gap between knowledge gained through research, and its application in policy and practice. The Sydney Cancer Partners CAG will focus on research translation with activities that build capacity and capability, encourage collaboration, and involve consumers to increase impact in research translation. SHP is providing seed funding to the CAG to develop a collaborative research translation project to build towards externally funded grant applications.
