Abstract and Keywords

The implications of current changes occurring in HE for healthcare research and practice are the focus of discussion in this chapter. Building capacity for the implementation and translation of healthcare research is a critical issue in HE. Both sectors have to increasingly negotiate common challenges that include technological disruption, decreased funding, and the need for collaborative partnerships. This chapter considers the role of universities in building the relationships and connections that foster human well-being and build social capital to create societies where all people can participate and have equitable access to healthcare. It explores the importance of research that adds value at the coalface and how industry can support this endeavour through working in collaboration with HE to produce work-ready or profession-ready graduates with the skills and attributes to facilitate and lead the change required of the future workforce in building social and human capital.

Keywords: healthcare improvement, higher education, wicked problems, implementation research, work-integrated learning, knowledge mobilization, profession-ready, critical thinking
