Implementation and Healthcare Improvement Masterclass

Managing Change for Direct Health Impact

Much has been written about the quality chasm in healthcare: the gap between our knowledge and our practice.

Join us for a two-day course that will 'unpack' how implementation science combines scientific disciplines to help explain approaches that enable people to adopt change in complex health systems.

Aimed at health professionals, researchers and students, policy makers and front-line clinicians who seek guidance and inspiration on healthcare improvement.

During the masterclass we will review conceptual frameworks and explore core implementation components and demonstrate how implementation science can be combined with healthcare improvement to improve outcomes for service users and the community.


Hear from internationally renowned experts on innovative means to improve the healthcare system as they provide an overview of implementation science approaches, evaluations, stakeholder engagement and co-design of implementation projects with service users.
