Health professionals have a unique perspective on research needs and are ideally placed to deliver outcomes that will lead to policy and practice change.

Health professionals see the health issues facing our community first-hand and can directly engage consumers in developing practical solutions. The Health Professional Researcher Program being developed by TCHI aims to support health professionals across all healthcare settings to be research active, by building research skills, facilitating research connections and addressing barriers to engaging in research. With more research-active health professionals, the additional capacity will support TCHI’s strategy to deliver the high-impact translational research that is needed in Tasmania. Participation in research also builds the skills and capability of our clinicians, and their ability to advance their discipline.
