Launching the MSH Research Action Plan

23 July 2021

We are launching a Research Action Plan to operationalise our Metro South Health Research Strategy across the Health Service. 

The Metro South Health (MSH) Research Strategy 2019-2024 defines our direction for research to drive high-quality health care and to achieve improved health outcomes for our patients. 

The Action Plan builds on many years of Metro South Health’s significant achievements in advancing quality of care and improving health outcomes through research and is shaped by the needs and priorities of our research community, our consumers, clinicians and research partners. 

Our aim is to strengthen and embed world-class research as a core function of our health service, creating a strong foundation for continuous improvement in patient care and outcomes. To achieve our goal effectively, we will work in direct partnership with consumers and community members, who will help ensure that MSH research is responsive to societal changes and public expectations.

The Research Action Plan commits to five strategic focus areas:

  • Build research capability
  • Increase research capacity
  • Embed research in clinical services
  • Translate research to better health 
  • Research excellence

The Action Plan will harness the opportunities available across the HHS and be supported by available systems and resources that align with health service requirements.

Many thanks to everyone that has contributed to the development of MSH Research Action Plan, including the consumers, and look forward to seeing lasting, transformative impacts through its implementation.
