Maridulu Budyari Gumal (SPHERE) Implementation Science Platform is pleased to announce that Dr Ayano Kelly, Rheumatologist at Liverpool Hospital has been awarded the 2021 SPHERE Implementation Science Seed Funding Grant for her studies commencing in 2022. 

The aim of the Implementation Science Seed Funding Program is to assist and support ‘near miss’ applications previously submitted to either the NSW Health Translational Research Grants Scheme or other Implementation Science grants programs to enhance their competitiveness in subsequent funding rounds.

Dr Kelly's research titled ‘Implementing an Interprofessional Medication Adherence Program for people with gout (I-IMAP Gout): a randomised controlled trial of implementation and effectiveness’ aims to improve medication adherence and health outcomes of patients with gout via a pharmacist-led medication adherence clinic.

Through Maridulu Budyari Gumal, the Implementation Science Platform is supporting university academics, health service leaders, clinician-researchers, implementation scientists, and emerging leaders to bolster translational research that will reduce evidence-practice gaps and improve patient outcomes.
