Director's Message

Welcome to 2019 and also to our new website. NSW Regional Health Partners is a very new organisation but determined to have an impact – by accelerating the translation of evidence into practice to improve the health and wellbeing of regional, rural and remote communities.

Currently there is frequently a gap between the best evidence we know and the care patients actually receive. This ‘translation gap’ is a major problem, reducing the benefit of investment in biomedical research, resulting in research waste and needlessly poor outcomes for individuals and communities. Closing it is not easy:

‘as a social intervention, improving health care is complex and, therefore, difficult to understand, design, implement, reproduce, describe and report’.
