Workforce Development

Education is a core element of Academic Health Science Centres internationally and fundamental to Monash Partners’ accreditation by the National Health and Medical Research Council as an Advanced Health Research Translation Centre.

Our workforce development platform is informed by current evidence that broader skills, outside conventional research training and existing academic and professional development programs, are needed to build collaboration, transform healthcare systems and change health outcomes.

The workforce for healthcare improvement research and translation requires different capabilities to the conventional clinical and research-trained workforce, such as stakeholder engagement, co-design, knowledge-mobilisation, implementation, distributive leadership and people skills, systems and scaling knowledge, and brokering and reconciliation skills. These attributes are not core to the professions and disciplines in Australian research or healthcare.

The purpose of our Workforce Development platform is to provide professional development opportunities and programs, aligned to the priorities and needs of our Partners and community.

Our education and training programs are co-designed in areas that add value while avoiding duplication, and provided at low or no cost.

To date our accredited Good Clinical Practice training program has reached almost 3,000 staff across the Monash Partners network. We are pleased to provide access to an online suite of curated resources to support meaningful involvement of consumers and community in research and healthcare improvement projects. Our Implementing Innovation in Healthcare free online introductory course is aimed at all healthcare workers and offered quarterly and complimented by a two day masterclass. Our Women in Leadership training is designed to inspire, encourage and support women in healthcare and research to reach their full potential.

In the coming months we will launch a training program for non-interventional research and the prevention of hospital acquired pressure injuries.

All courses can be accessed via our education and training tab, HERE.
