July Newsletter 2021
CEI’s mission is to ensure the best evidence is implemented in policy and practice to improve the lives of vulnerable people. To this end, our July newsletter gives a snapshot of five key projects where we have had impact in the first half of 2021.
We are excited to contribute to this important sector and have recently shared perspectives in numerous forums. There are also opportunities to join our team if you too are inspired by creating impact using the best evidence. Read on for further details.

CEI staff have been busy presenting ideas and engaging with the sector:Executive Director Dr Robyn Mildon shared the latest developments in the methods and application of Implementation Science in practice (including types of measures and designs needed to reliably generate the kind of high-quality implementation research that pushes the field forward) as part of a series of webinars for the Global Evidence Synthesis Initiative (GESI).
Robyn also delivered the keynote at the Mental Health Victoria Symposium Preparing for reform: Co-production, culture change and leadership, addressing collaboration and leadership with key influencers brought together to discuss the implementation of the changes needed to progress mental health reform in Victoria.
