Professor Warwick Anderson AM, CEO of the National Health and Medical Research Council, recently addressed a CIPHER forum to share how the NHMRC was testing ways to better match research funding with policy needs.

CIPHER, the Centre for Informing Policy in Health with Evidence from Research, is an Australian collaborative research centre managed by the Sax Institute, that is investigating the tools, skills and systems that might contribute to an increased use of research evidence in policy.

  • 3. 19/02/2014 3 NHMRC Partnership Projects initiative aims: 1. meet the need for a more effective integration of research evidence into health policy and service delivery; 2. create partnerships among policy makers, managers, service providers and researchers; and 3. provide answers to the often complex and difficult questions that policy makers, managers and service providers face when making decisions that affect Australians’ health and health care. Projects must be proposed by alliances between researchers and policy and/or practice partner organisations. This initiative aims to increase the opportunities for the transfer and exchange of research evidence (knowledge), which could result in a greater uptake of research evidence into health policy and health practice and, consequently, an improvement in Australian health and health care.
