Opened 12 Jan 2018


The Office of the Chief Health Professions Officer (OCHPO) seeks your views on a  document designed to guide the WA health system to build the research and knowledge translation capacity of its allied health and health science professions.

This document is the result of two prior consultation forums with key stakeholders and an extensive literature review. We aim to provide a high level strategic direction that is consistent with WA health system policy, particularly the 2016 Research Policy Framework which is available below.

A copy of the draft document, "Allied Health and Health Sciences Research and Knowledge Translation - A Strategic Framework" is also available below.  

Feedback on the draft document can be provided via email to the OCHPO inbox (CHPO@health.wa.gov.au) or by responding to the following consultation. The consultation questions refer to sections of text from the draft document.

We greatly appreciate your contribution to this valuable WA health system commitment.
