Institute for Implementation Science in Health Care (IfIS): Launch Event and Masterclass

Did you ever wonder how do we evolve from a scientific breakthrough improving medical care to its application in ‘real life’? Implementation Science is a discipline which cares about transferring research results into health care. Indeed, we know currenty it is taking an average of 15 years for evidence-based practice to become a widespread use. How do we reduce this time?

To research and initite solutions, the IfIS has recently opened within the University of Zurich, following the apparition of a new research strategy. Head of the group of Digital and Mobile Health is Prof Viktor von Wyl, part of the Digital Society Initiative as one of the DSI professors.

We are pleased to invite you to join the event virtually on Thursday 28th October 2021 starting from 4.00 pm. Key speakers will include Prof. Beatrice Beck Schimmer (UZH), Prof. Maries van den Broek (UZH), Prof. Claudia Witt (USZ) and Dr. David Chambers, Deputy Director for Implementation Science at the National Cancer Institute in the United States.

Learn to apply Implementation Science to your research: Masterclass given by the IfIS at the University of Zurich


The Institute for Implementation Science in Health Care (IfIS) is conducting a Masterclass that will be offered in November 2021.

The Masterclass is built in two distinct parts directed at different audiences. The first part is aimed at people looking for an introduction to Implementation Science. Besides the talks, you will get access to background literature and e-learning tools. Dr. Per Nilsen from the University of Linköping (Sweden) will be the keynote lecturer. The second part is aimed at researchers coming with their own project where Implementation Science may be applied and willing to work on it in groups. IfIS Professors will support you; this class will take place physically at the Zentrum für Weiterbildung of the UZH.
