Allied health research support and skills training via IIMPACT in health

The Allied & Scientific Health Office (ASHO) is pleased to announce a partnership with the newly established Innovation in IMPlementation And Clinical Translation (IIMPACT) group at the University of South Australia, supporting research skills training & capacity development

The intent of this partnership is to increase allied health research knowledge and evidence implementation, ultimately promoting improved health service delivery and better consumer outcomes. The partnership also aims to increase the engagement of allied health clinicians with research activities as well as boost collaboration between academics, clinicians and consumers of allied health care.

A variety of research skills training and capacity development opportunities will be made available through this partnership, including training & resources, mentoring and utilisation of students to support research.

Please email health.alliedandscientifichealth@sa.gov.au if you have any queries about research supports and training opportunities.

Initiatives to build research capacity

Research helpdesk

Are you an allied health clinician with a question about undertaking or translating research? If you have tried the online resources below and can’t find your answer – get in touch.

An email address has been created to connect clinicians with research questions to the researchers who have the answers! If you have a question about any part of the research continuum; from engaging with literature, to formulating a research question, selecting methodology, how to get your paper published or how to put someone else’s paper into practice - please contact Allied.researchhelp@unisa.edu.au.

Mentoring opportunities

Through the IIMPACT partnership, there is an opportunity for SA Health allied health clinicians to access mentoring support from UniSA researchers, to develop the skills you need to make your research efforts a success.

Capacity for mentoring support is dependent on availability of mentors in the appropriate discipline at the time of application. Any requests unable to be matched at the time of application will be retained and contacted in the future when an appropriate mentor becomes available.

If you would like to connect with a research mentor, please complete the application form.
