Who we are
The Victorian Collaboration for Translating Research Outcomes into the Primary Health Interface (Trophi) is a collaboration between the Monash University Department of General Practice, The University of Melbourne Department of General Practice and the RACGP, funded by the Windermere Foundation.
Trophi aims to drive high quality implementation and translational research that provides contemporary practice-based evidence to improve primary health care and patient outcomes in the outer Eastern Melbourne region of Victoria, in particular the Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges local government areas.
While the project is based in Melbourne’s east, Trophi has the potential to use its research findings to inform local, state and national policies.
Through its collaborative network of GPs, decision makers, researchers and members of the community, Trophi will drive high quality research to generate practice-based evidence to improve healthcare and patient outcomes.
The network aims to:
- Develop capacity in translational and healthcare improvement research in primary health care practitioners, practices and networks.
- Facilitate coordinated implementation research to drive translation of research into practice.
- Engender a professional-wide enthusiasm and passion for improving patient outcomes and practice innovation.
- Provide a significant proportion of resources to support research initiatives in Melbourne’s outer eastern primary health care practice communities.
- Inform the development of a national primary health care and general practice research framework, to enable engagement and investment in the sector.
