Choose how to learn

A Bond microcredential is a flexible study option that allows you to undertake professional development at a postgraduate level without committing to a full degree. 

We offer two types of Healthcare Innovations Microcredentials:
  • Single subject microcredentials
  • Self-paced microcredentials

 

  • The Exploring Knowledge Translation in Clinical Practice program is a series of four (4) short self-paced microcredentials that can be completed at your own pace, at anytime. The first course in the series is offered free-of-charge.

    Delivered online, the courses will provide you with the skills and knowledge to navigate the latest research evidence, critically evaluate current practices, and lead the implementation of an improvement plan. The program will guide you through identifying knowledge practice gaps and effectively engaging and influencing
    stakeholders to effect positive change in your organisation.
     
    Key features of self-paced microcredentials include:

    • Start anytime
    • 100% online
    • Can be completed in 10 hours with access for up to a year
    • Designed for ‘just-in-time’ learning and without the stressors of formal assessment

Completing the Exploring Knowledge Translation course has enabled me to gain a deeper understanding of what knowledge translation is and how it differs from the quality improvement projects I’ve been involved in as a clinician. I now feel more confident to apply the principles of planned-action frameworks and behaviour change theories to my future projects. Finally, I’ve learned that prior to making any changes aimed at improving practice, it is essential to identify and liaise with key stakeholders and discuss and address any potential barriers and facilitators to change. I look forward to using the knowledge and skills I have obtained from this course to translate key learnings from my research to support health promotion practice within the school setting.
