This unit provides students an opportunity to implement and report upon a translational research project addressing a contemporary healthcare management issue. Students will apply and demonstrate research theories, methodologies and skills. Students will be responsible for effective management of their research team involving industry and academic supervisors. Students are expected to utilise evidence from the literature to direct their research, and when reporting their findings make a contribution to improving the evidence base. Students will communicate the results of their research project and make specific industry based recommendations for improving organisational performance. Students will have opportunities to hear from experts across Australia and participate in industry case studies and analysis.
