The Allied Health Professions’ Office of Queensland (AHPOQ) is inviting two consumer representatives to partner with AHPOQ to guide the allied health research portfolio for a two-year term.
AHPOQ plays a key role in the development, implementation and evaluation of strategies to ensure an appropriately skilled allied health workforce to meet the current and future health service needs of Queensland. There are over 9000 allied health professional and technical staff working in Queensland, who work alongside doctors and nurses to provide optimum health care.
The purpose of the research portfolio is to provide oversight and support allied health research capability and capacity across Queensland. The consumer representatives will provide advocacy and advice within this portfolio on the key components including:
- Membership of the Health Practitioner Research Advisory Group (HPRAG)
- Membership of the Peer Review Panel of the Health Practitioner Research Scheme (HPRS)
- Providing advice to the Allied Health – Translational Research into Practice (AH-TRIP) Steering Committee as required
- Providing advice on the development and implementation of the Allied Health 10-year Strategy including the Queensland Health Allied Health Research Plan.
