The Centre’s funding partners are NSW Health, Bupa Foundation and University of Notre Dame. Each of these partners nominates a Designated System-based Investigator (DSBI) who joins the Lead Investigation Team.
In addition, the Centre has assembled an impressive range of additional System Partners who are prepared to assist with the research program and test promising interventions to ensure they are implementable, or scalable, in practice. They are listed in full under the System Partners Advisory Forum in the Advisory Groups menu tab.
Some System Partners will become involved with facilitating evidence collection, pilot testing, implementation and/or behaviour/system change. Some may simply provide their advice/support while still others will become directly involved in applying the research in practice – called System Implementation Partners (SIPs).
The participation of an array of System Implementation Partners is critical to the successful translation of research activities into sustainable health system reform. Already, a number of governments, health services, and care providers have agreed to participate in one or more of the eight main research projects listed under each of the three Research Areas. These include:
