One of the biggest issues hindering improvements in health today is the inconsistency between interventions which we know can improve health and health care delivery and the interventions which are actually applied in everyday practice. One of APHCRI’s three goals is to address this area by better driving the implementation of research findings into primary health care policy and practice.
APHCRI’s Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) program funds research which seeks to implement research outcomes. Six of the nine CREs have recorded brief video clips presenting some of the direct impacts of CRE funded research on both primary health care policy and practice. The CREs in the clips are still actively engaged in their research programs, so work is not yet complete, however these clips provide an insight into the research project and process by explaining:
- What problem were the researchers trying to understand?
- What did the researchers do?
- What did the research find?
- What impact did the research findings have?
