The 1st IMPACT Conference signaled an exciting next phase in Swiss health care research.
It consisted of two parts:

On January 22, 2021, we spent the morning celebrating the official launch of the Swiss Implementation Science Network, beginning with keynote lectures – the first by Professor Dr. Michel Wensing, chief editor of the pioneering journal, ‘Implementation Science’ (University of Heidelberg, Germany), the second by Dr. Cynthia Vinson, senior advisor for implementation science in the USA’s National Cancer Institute Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences in Washington, DC.

Starting on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 we organized an Implementation Science Masterclass series with contributions from international experts Professor Dr. Leah Zullig (Duke University, USA), Professor Dr. Byron Powell
(Washington University, St. Louis, USA) and Dr. Cynthia Vinson. Each Masterclasses provided a mix of theoretical lectures and practical Swiss examples of implementation science projects, followed by a discussion.

A total of 237 participants attended the opening event and an average of 177 participants attended the masterclasses.

The IMPACT conference has been converted to a virtual event due to the CoVID-19 pandemic.

We warmly welcome you to be part of an exciting next phase in Swiss health care research!
