The increasing focus on evidence based practice requires concerted research about “what works” and consistent evaluation practices. Creating mechanisms to identify and prioritise research activities in an ongoing manner, is also an important next step, as is partnering with key research institutions and disseminating key learnings.
Actions relating to this goal include:
Embed evaluation of new and redeveloped programs as routine.
Identification and prioritisation of key research questions for the SHS as an ongoing process.
Further build on collaborative partnerships between the SHS and research/ academic organisations.
Deliverable relating to this goal include:
Undertake consultation to identify the key components of a SHS Research Plan.
