Research Translation Projects

‘Evidence for a sustainable health system’


The Research Translation Projects (RTP) program was established by the former State Health Research Advisory Council (SHRAC) of the Department of Health in 2007.

The program seeks to support high-quality research projects that have the potential to demonstrate improved cost effectiveness and/or efficiencies that can be delivered to WA Health while maintaining or improving patient outcomes, with a focus on translation of research outcomes into health care policy and practice in WA.

Applications in the areas of clinical, health services and public health research are encouraged.

Projects should address relevant contemporary challenges faced by WA Health and where possible, the research should be linked to WA Health priorities.

Multidisciplinary and cross-institution collaborations are strongly encouraged.

Predicted benefits of the research should be substantiated by solid economic justification provided by a person with health economic expertise.

Proposals that have the potential to become the basis for subsequent implementation, commercialisation or research grant applications to national funding bodies such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) are strongly encouraged.

Further details about the RTP program, including funding round status and application forms and guidelines, are now located on the Future Health Research and Innovation Fund website.  

Past recipients of RTP funding can be viewed here.
