Implementation Science is a pioneering, highly-accessed journal dedicated to publishing evidence regarding methods for promoting the uptake of consolidated research findings into routine healthcare practice and health policy. 

Crossing Borders – Overcoming Boundaries: European Implementation Event 2021

The EIE2021 is the first European event where implementation – the translation, uptake and integration of research findings within the daily routines of human services – takes centre stage. Implementation draws on multiple disciplines and perspectives including sociology, psychology, organisational theory, social and political science aiming to give voice to both providers, and their clients, patients, students and others who are the end-users of services. The EIE2021 will present and discuss knowledge and ideas on how to effectively cross borders through implementation science and practice and thereby change boundaries. The event will be live broadcasted from The Netherlands and feature speakers from all over the world. Register here to enjoy the latest implementation insights right from your living room. Early bird registration closes on 28 February 2021.

The Opening Conference had a great IMPACT: 

Interesting keynote speeches, interactive polls and expert discussions. The audience was international and numerous: 237 participants from 25 countries followed the event live. The video of the opening event can be viewed by clicking on the image to the left. The successful launch of IMPACT will be followed by a virtual masterclass series with five masterclass sessions in the weeks between 27 January and 3 March 2021. In each of the masterclass sessions, international experts will present both the theoretical foundations of implementation science and practical examples of Swiss implementation projects. 

We are pleased to announce the 1st IMPACT conference!

The conference will be a virtual event with two parts: an opening event on January 22, 2021, as well as a virtual Masterclass series on Implementation Science with five online lectures starting January 27, 2021. The detailed program can be found here. We look forward to welcoming you virtually to participate in a tremendously exciting phase in Swiss health care research!

Lecture on Implementation Science

In the fascinating lectures series “Zeitreise der nationalen Entwicklung in der Pflege” of the Kantonspital Aarau, Prof. Dr. Sabina De Geest gives an insight into the significance of implementation science and its value for nursing practice: Wie die Implementierungswissenschaft die Leistung der Pflege bei der Entwicklung, Implementierung und Evaluation innovativer Pflegemodelle für die Praxis stärken kann

New publication out now

The most recent publication: Powering Swiss health care for the future: implementation science to bridge “the valley of death” reflects the viewpoint of including Implementation Science as an integral element in Swiss health research and announced the launch of IMPACT: https://doi.org/10.4414/smw.2020.20323

European Implementation Collaborative

Dr. Thekla Brunkert (IMPACT co-founder) has been elected to the board of the European Implementation Collaborative (EIC). As an international network, the EIC connects various national Implementation Science associations and offers various opportunities for international exchange and collaboration between researchers, practitioners and organisations.
