Research Impact Assessment: The Framework to assess the impact from translational health research
Professor Andrew Searles and Dr. Shanti Ramanathan
Provides guidance on the methodology for impact assessment via the Framework to Assess the Impact from Translational Health research (FAIT model).
Prof Searles and Dr Ramanathan, talk us through step by step, how to conduct research impact assessment using the FAIT model. They talk about the different types of methodologies that make up the impact assessment; Economic analysis, narrative of translation, metrics (modified payback model). An exemplar project is utilised to demonstrate the application of this model across all of the domains: identifying the need, aims, activities, key output, end users, pathway to adoption, impacts.
Prof Searles and Dr Ramanathan demonstrate the application of the FAIT model for impact assessments and offer suggestions on how to keep on track along the translational pathway
