Event description
Join us as we take a moment to reflect on the achievements of Sydney Health Partners to date, and consider what comes next.

About this Event

For five years the members of Sydney Health Partners have worked together to speed the translation of great ideas into better health outcomes.

Throughout, our Partnership has focused on removing or reducing the barriers to the translation of research findings into clinical practice.

We have helped to address some of the challenges most important the health system, assisted in the implementation of promising innovations and built capacity in the science of research translation – all to deliver greater public and patient benefit.

Now we are taking a moment to reflect on what we have achieved to date and consider what comes next.
