1st Conference of the Swiss Implementation Network (IMPACT)
Thu. 04. Jun 2020 - Fri. 05. Jun 2020
The 1st IMPACT conference consists of 2 parts. In the late afternoon on June 4, we will focus on the official start of the Swiss Implementation Science Network including a keynote lecture by a renowned international expert and a discussion round with key stakeholders from Swiss health policy and research. On June 5, a Masterclass on implementation science methodology is scheduled using Swiss implementation science projects as examples.
In Switzerland, this is an exciting time of growth in our national understanding and focus on implementation science. As evidence of this growing emphasis on implementation science, a number of implementation science projects are now funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation in the NFP74 research program and other competitive funding agencies. It is time to further strengthen and develop the capacity for implementation science in Switzerland.
The goals of the Swiss Implementation Science Network (IMPACT) launched in December 2019 are to:
(1) Showcase implementation science projects in health care conducted by Swiss health care researchers and institutions;
(2) Provide networking opportunities for implementation science researchers and other interested stakeholders in Switzerland;
(3) Provide training opportunities for implementation science; and
(4) Leverage funding options for implementation science in Switzerland.
