Metro South Health Research Support Scheme (RSS)

The Metro South Health Research Support Scheme (RSS) is administered by the Centres for Health Research and aims to award excellence in research that translates research discoveries into health and medical outcomes.

Objectives

The scheme's objectives are to support:

  1. Research translation by enabling the translation of the highest quality research evidence into health care policy and clinical practice
  2. Research innovation by supporting the development of the highest quality new knowledge in health research within Metro South Health with our partners
  3. Research capacity building and collaboration by maintaining and building the highest quality research capacity and collaborations within Metro South Health—this is supported through the development of:
    • cross-disciplinary and multi-site research collaborations within Metro South Health
    • inter-institutional collaborations with Metro South Health academic partners
    • the highest quality Metro South Health researchers, so that they establish themselves as independent, self-directed researchers.

The Metro South Health Research Support Scheme (RSS) is a joint initiative funded by:
