Join us now to read the full bulletin
Trustees Wanted – Do you work in practice, or policy, or research with an implementation or improvement focus? Be part of a busy group committed to growing and supporting the implementation field in the UK. The UK-IS Board is seeking colleagues from within the Society membership to join us as new Trustees.
Coming Soon - Those who work in implementation science or practice or policy in the UK will know just how fragmented and scattered our professional community is. In response, the Society is developing an on-line Directory of Members for those members who would like to be included. Watch this space: UK-IS members will shortly receive more information and an invitation to be part of the Directory if they wish.
Save the Date - UK-IS will be supporting The European Implementation Event 2020 (#EIE2020) which will take place on October 1st – 2nd 2020 in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Pre-conference activities on September 30th 2020. At the EIE2020, Implementation – the translation, uptake and integration of research findings within the daily routines of human services – takes centre stage.
The European Implementation Event 2020 (#EIE2020)
The European Implementation Event 2020 (#EIE2020) will take place on October 1 and 2, 2020 in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Pre-conference activities will occur on September 30, 2020.
At the EIE2020, Implementation – the translation, uptake and integration of research findings within the daily routines of human services – takes centre stage.
Attendees will learn about latest, cutting-edge implementation science and practice; participate in inspiring and surprising discussions with international colleagues; expand their professional network; and be inspired by the diversity of this exciting discipline.
The EIE2020 brings together individuals and organisations engaged in synthesising, translating, adopting and implementing evidence in human service practice and policy.
You may work in health, social welfare, education or other human service sectors; you may be a psychologist, social worker, occupational therapist, nurse, sociologist, economist or have a totally different educational background; researchers as well as practitioners, funders, organisational leaders, intermediaries and other roles are welcome at the event – as are those who are new to the field and those with extensive knowledge and experience.
