Are you a clinician who has noticed a clinical problem in your daily practice? Is there an issue you face in your clinical work that presents a challenge? Do patients or caregivers often draw attention to a particular issue that needs to be addressed? Are you tired of wondering 'surely, there's a better way to do this?' If so,this Sydney Catalyst workshop might be a good chance for you to transform some of those issues and/or ideas into better practice, care and outcomes for people affected by cancer.

Whether you think it is individual, team or system-level change that is required to fix the problem, all Expressions of Interest are welcome.If you are a nurse or allied health professional working in cancer care, we especially want to hear from you! Others including existing implementation researchers are also invited to make contact and tell us more about your idea.

While the workshop is intended for Sydney Catalyst members, non-members from our member groups are very welcome to submit their ideas too!  


The purpose of this Clinical Dilemma & Concept Development Workshop (CDW) is to provide an opportunity for Sydney Catalyst members (both existing and new!) interested in evidence into practice and implementation research to present a clinical problem, question or research ideathat can be further developed into a research proposal.

In this workshop, participants will work with members of the Sydney Catalyst T2T3 Working Group (T2T3 WG), with broad expertise in health services, epidemiology, biostatistics, psycho-oncology, cancer nursing, palliative care research. Implementation science is the scientific study of methodsto promote the systematic uptake of research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine practice and improve the quality and effectiveness of health services and care (Eccles & Mittman, 2006). It is nominally identified on the translational cancer research spectrum as T3.

Advice and support on the day will focus on defining clinical problems and refining research questions, and additional research support from Sydney Catalyst may be available to workshop participants afterwards.


If you are interested in finding out more, please use this form to outline your clinical question, problem or research idea and send it to no later than COB Wed 04th October.

Applications will be reviewed by our T2T3 WG faculty and further information about the opportunity to participate in the workshop will be provided to applicants on or around Mon 16th October.

If you need further information, wish to discuss the workshop or an idea you have, please contact the Sydney Catalyst Central Office.
