The Chief Allied Health Office recognises the importance of research and is committed to building research capacity in our allied health practitioners.
We support a number of initiatives that support allied health engagement in research, including:
- Allied Health Research Support Grants – an initiative that provides up to $5000 to support allied health led research projects at ACT Health
- Awards for allied health research – this includes allied health awards provided as part of the annual Canberra Health Annual Research Meeting (CHARM)
The Chief Allied Health Office also supports the ACT Health Allied Health Research Network. This Network includes membership from a wide variety of allied health professional groups at ACT Health, along with the ACT Health Office of Research and other key stakeholders. The role of this group includes helping to build research culture, capability and capacity across all Allied Health professions within ACT Health and Calvary Public Hospital.
Allied health staff working at either Calvary Health Care ACT or ACT Health can access library resources related to their work through their respective library service. Library staff may be able to assist in the provision of information and/or courses that update staff on current library e-resources and teach efficient and effective database searching skills.
