4th SPINE Summerschool 2018
Leading health care by Developing, Implementing and Evaluating Innovations in Service Delivery
Health and health services research creates value when newly developed interventions are effective and implemented and scaled up across multiple sites. Innovations in service delivery are challenging to develop, implement and evaluate. Indeed not only sound knowledge about the active mechanisms of the service innovation, but also the methodology to conduct research in the field are required. The 2018 SPINE summer school will bring international scholars, Postdocs and PhD students together to address those challenges by developing, writing-up and presenting research projects of innovations in service delivery (ISD).
The 2018 SPINE summer school mixes lectures on methodological key challenges for ISD projects, active group work of summer school participants lead by senior researchers from different fields and formative feedback from peers and experienced researchers to push the development of research projects.
In this course, participants will be introduced to the full cycle of developing, implementing and evaluating innovations in service delivery, using an implementation science framework.
Participants will learn the skills required to develop a research proposal on service delivery innovations that coud lead to results that will have the potential for implementation in routine care and can be adopted to a given context.
Participants will benefit from understanding how to choose an appropriate implementation framework, will understand hybrid designs types, assessment of intervention fidelity, and tailoring interventions to the local context.
During the course, each of the course days will consist of lectures, small group work and formative feedback sessions. Through small group work and engagement with peers and experts, participants learn about the development process of research proposals for innovations in service delivery. Participants will advance their skills by applying their knowledge on real world examples and topic areas by determine determining promising theoretical frameworks, core components of delivery interventions, qualitative and quantitative approaches to evaluation of effectiveness and implementation, and effectiveness and how to involve stakeholders in the process. As part of the proposal writing in small group sessions, participants will develop specific aims for of a research proposal for review and discussion.
The course is set-up to facilitate participants with diverse professional backgrounds (e.g. nursing, medicine, public health), affiliations and settings and research experience and will capitalize on the range of perspectives available.
