HPER71-112: Knowledge Translation and Quality in Healthcare


In this subject you will develop the knowledge and skills to be able to translate effective research into clinical practice to improve health outcomes. You will do this by identifying a research-practice gap from which to develop a feasible research translation project and apply

the Knowledge to Action Cycle to your proposed project. You will develop core skills in assessing and identifying research-practice gaps, assessing barriers and facilitators to change, classifying and applying behaviour change frameworks to your project and

synthesising the project into a logic model. This tangible and practical outcome can be used to develop a research protocol and implement a research translation project within your workplace.
