Our Work

Workstream 1 

Knowledge Generation leading to improved health outcomes

Generate a rich pipeline of trials to test new stroke interventions, tailored by our innovation in trial methodology. Through our consumer co-design we will deliver a portfolio of optimal trial designs that address the unmet needs of those with stroke and showcase different trial methodologies. By developing our pioneering work using information and communications technology (ICT) and telehealth, we will enable research participation and impact in rural and remote Australia.

Workstream 2 

Promoting the transfer of research outcomes into health policy and practice

Provide swift translation of this new knowledge into clinical practice with a whole-of- system approach that builds on our links between academia, health services, NGOs, and state and federal governments. We will use big data and consumer input to prioritise areas for translation and incorporate new methods of knowledge translation to ensure impact.

Workstream 3 

Developing the stroke trials research workforce

Develop the health and medical research workforce by providing opportunities to advance the training of new researchers, particularly those with a capacity for independent research and future leadership roles

Develop the stroke clinical trial health and medical research workforce to ensure a pipeline of a new generation of interdisciplinary clinical researchers and consumers, regardless of where they are located, are identified, trained and supported to become part of the solution in stroke research, now and in the generation ahead. This will be achieved by exchange visits, clinical trial courses and workshops on research grantsmanship.

Workstream 4

Facilitating collaboration

Strengthen collaboration by building on our excellent track record of partnerships across the multiple disciplines of stroke with a program of activities to build engagement.
