Metro North Hospital and Health Service 2018 LINK innovation funding now open

The LINK grant fosters innovation, providing staff and community partners to partner together to explore their ideas to improve the delivery of care and services to deliver more integrated patient care.

Leading Innovation through Networking and Knowledge-Sharing (LINK) funding is allocated at the discretion of the Metro North Hospital and Health Service Chief Executive. The application process provides staff and community partners with the opportunity to present innovation ideas directly to Metro North Executive for consideration.

Through the funding, staff and partners can influence the future delivery of healthcare internally, nationally and even internationally. Previous LINK projects have gone on to publish findings, present at conferences and be acknowledged with internal and external awards.

Community partners are encouraged to approach potential partners within Metro North to start the discussions about innovative ideas and solutions for integrated and connected care.

The application round will be open until 30 September. For more information visit https://metronorth.smartygrants.com.au/LINKSEED2018, email InnovationLinkandSEED@health.qld.gov.au or phone 07 3647 9719.
