We are pleased to announce the 6th Annual NHMRC Symposium on Research Translation, which this year will be co-hosted by the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Lowitja Institute.

Under the theme "The Butterfly Effect: Translating Knowledge into Action for Positive Change", the Symposium will present an outstanding opportunity to focus on action needed to improve the health and wellbeing of Australia’s First Peoples through effective translation of health, wellbeing and medical research into policy and practice. It will also be a forum to share knowledge of what successful research looks like at community level and what the key elements of success are.

The Symposium is for anyone with an interest in improving the health and wellbeing of Australia’s First Peoples through the better use of high quality research in practice and policy. It will include researchers, policy makers, health care practitioners, community health workers, community members and consumers. Symposium participants will have the opportunity to network with, learn from, and establish collaborations with others committed to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

All aspects of the symposium will have a sound cultural frame and reflect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural values.

The call for abstracts for the Symposium is now open. Further information.
