Kolling researcher takes out coveted award Congratulations to Kolling researcher Dr Jillian Eyles who has been named one of the inaugural research translation fellows by Sydney Health Partners. Facing tremendous competition from a large group of researchers, Jillian

is one of just five people to have been awarded a fellowship. Sydney Health Partners said the fellowships are aimed at building research translation capability in the workforce by supporting researchers to improve their translational skills while remaining in their substantive position. Sydney Health Partners Executive Director Professor Don Nutbeam says the new fellows were successful in a highly competitive process. “We’re very pleased to be able to support such able clinicians and researchers through Sydney Health Partners. The standard of applications was very high and we are disappointed not to be in a position to support several other worthy applicants,” he said. Dr Eyles will now be able to direct her research focus to strategies to enhance the adoption of the Osteoarthritis Chronic Care Program (OACCP) across NSW public hospitals. Jillian has welcomed the

fellowship saying it will provide an opportunity to extend this important program focusing on evidenced-based, patient centred care to improve outcomes for people living with osteoarthritis. “While it is a great program, the clinicians who lead the OACCP have identified important aspects that could be improved to make it even more successful,” she said. “I’m looking forward to collaborating with clinicians from Northern Sydney, Western Sydney and Sydney local health districts to help make this happen.”

Kolling Institute Acting Executive Director Jim Elliott has commended Jillian on her fellowship, saying it’s a testament to her talent and impressive track record. “This additional support from Sydney Health Partners is welcome as the Kolling steps up its focus on research translation,” he said. “By investing in projects like this, we can speed the implementation of best practice, and ensure our hospital-based care is informed by the very latest developments and research.”
