Health Practitioner Research

The Allied Health Professions’ Office of Queensland recognises the importance of research and are committed to building research capacity in our health practitioners.

To support this, we have established a Health Practitioner Research Capacity Building Program to enhance clinical skills and improve patient outcomes through building:

  • greater understanding of the role of research and evidence in improving health practitioner clinical practice
  • enhanced research skills and research experience in the health practitioner workforce
  • infrastructure that supports health practitioners, research and researchers
  • networks for communication, coordination and collaboration
  • focus on research relevant to clinical practice and models of care, and translation of this research into practice.

Some of the key initiatives and strategies that have been implemented under this program include:

  • awarding research funds through the Health Practitioner Research Scheme
  • allocating Research Fellow positions across the department
  • rolling out a Health Practitioner Research Capacity survey
  • coordinating research networks
  • establishing a Health Practitioner Research Advisory Group to provide advice, monitor and evaluate research activities
