Making research matter in clinical practice - Understanding the journey from research to implementation

Now in its sixth year, the annual Mater Research TRIP Symposium is a one day event which provides a scientific forum for researchers, clinicians, health professionals and health consumers from Queensland’s leading medical research institutes, hospitals, health organisations and universities to learn and discuss how their research can inform changes in practice and healthcare strategies.

The 2018 symposium focuses on the pivotal role that consumers and communities play in the design and success of clinical translation. 

The program will focus on:

  • engaging and partnering with consumers and communities in research and practice
  • finding success in clinical translation of research through integrated care
  • using technology to enable and improve research translation to drive advances in health care.

Each session features thought-provoking presentations and case studies from leading Australian researchers, many of whom will be co-presenting with members of the community involved in their research.
