Have you led research that has led to change in health policy or services? These Awards are designed to recognise your work and help bring it to a wider audience!
The Sax Institute’s Research Action Awards honour individuals whose research has made a significant impact on health policy, programs or service delivery. Up to two Awards will be granted and each winner will receive a certificate and prize of $5,000. Applications are open until 5pm, Monday, 22 August 2022 AEST.
Winners of this year’s Awards will be chosen by a committee of national and international experts chaired by Professor John Lavis, founder and Director of the McMaster Health Forum at McMaster University, Canada, and also Director of the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Evidence-Informed Policy.
Award winners will be honoured at a special event in Sydney on Wednesday, 23 November 2022, attended by senior health policy makers and research leaders from across the country.
