Our vision

Within Innovation, IMPlementation And Clinical Translation (IIMPACT in Health), our vision is to enable and empower people with chronic conditions to reach their potential for recovery, independence and wellbeing.

We will achieve this vision by impacting individuals, health service delivery, outcomes and education through strategic collaborations, bold ideas, outstanding research and exemplary communication.

We work together with consumers and clinicians to identify real-world problems.

We undertake qualitative, behavioural & neurophysiological experiments to find new solutions.

We conduct clinical trials to test those solutions.

We undertake implementation projects to optimise uptake of effective solutions and identify remaining problems.

We bring the same approach to embedding our research discoveries into our undergraduate, postgraduate and professional development education. We are committed to help build a workforce of engaged, supported and connected allied health ‘clinician scientists’.
