About the HRTC
Hunter New England Local Health District's Health Research and Translation Centre (HRTC) was established in January 2016 and is led by Director - Professor John Wiggers and supported by Manager - Ms Kristy Morris and Acting Manager - Mrs Melissa Crain.
Hunter New England Local Health District (HNELHD) is committed to supporting high quality health and medical research and the translation of research evidence into everyday clinical practice. We recognise that sustained support for both areas of endeavour is vital for us to continue to improve the quality of the care we provide, and to improve the health and wellbeing of the people we care for.
Health Research and Translation Plan 2018-2021 was developed and is led by the HRTC. The Plan, the second for the Health District, specifies a range of priority actions that will enable us to build on our existing research and research translation strengths.
The health and wellbeing of HNELHD patients and community is enhanced through the conduct of health and medical research and the translation of research evidence into high quality and effective health service delivery.
The Plan has two aims:
1. To strengthen HNELHD systems and processes that enable the conduct of health and medical research undertaken, commissioned, supported and/or to be utilised by the Health District.
2. To strengthen HNELHD systems and processes that enable the translation of research evidence into routine clinical practice across the Health District through priority driven innovation and quality improvement initiatives.
