Information about funding

AusHSI will deliver funding in these ways:

Implementation Grants

This funding scheme replaces the previous Stimulus Grant scheme. Implementation Grants of up to $150,000 are available to Queensland-based health services groups. Projects will be 12 months in duration. These grants will be to support groups to conduct health services research involving implementation and evaluation in a “real world” health service setting.  The focus should be on providing evidence for health service changes that are both effective and sustainable. 

A successful application for an Implementation grant will have these attributes:

  • A strong evidence-base for the innovation, with existing pilot data to support the impact/value and feasibility of its wider adoption
  • The innovation is supported by the leadership of the relevant health service/s
  • The team is committed to learning implementation science and building a strategy for implementation and evaluation
  • There is partnership between health professionals, academics, and decision makers
