These awards have replaced the HSRAANZ Professional Award. These awards recognise investigators who have made significant contributions to the fields of health services research and health policy in Australia and New Zealand through scholarship and teaching, advancement of science and methods, and leadership. Awards will be given in up to three categories:
Life time achievement
This category will recognise a lifetime of achievement in the fields of health services research and health policy in Australia or New Zealand. The Association is keen to recognise services to the field with respect to research, translation, training, and teaching.
This category will recognise mid-career researchers who over a shorter career span have made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of health services and health policy research through scholarship and teaching, advancement of science and methods, translation and leadership.
This category will recognise significant contributions of early career researchers.
A call for nominations for the 2017 Awards will be made soon.
