Health System Improvement through Effective Implementation

How do we close the gap between what we know can optimize health and health care and what actually gets implemented into everyday practice?

Sydney Health Partners and the University of Sydney will tackle the challenge at their second annual Implementation Science Symposium, to be held at the Vet Conference Centre (Webster Lecture Theatre), the University of Sydney, on Monday 19 November 2018.

UNLOCKING RESEARCH: Health System Improvement through Effective Implementation will feature a keynote address by University of Michigan Professor Anne Sales - Co-Editor-in-Chief of Implementation Science, the discipline’s leading journal, and Research Scientist at the Center for Clinical Management Research, VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System. 

Aimed at healthcare managers, researchers and policymakers, the Symposium will also feature presentations by renowned Australians working to bridge the distance between research, practice, and policy in health care.
