Exploring the Significance of Bidirectional Learning for Global Health Education
Report the participation in the Intensive Course on Fundamentals of Implementation Science (IS) in Global Health and present the theoretical scope of IS methods and the potential applicability perspectives for improving global health.
Experience report on participation in the course, promoted by the University of Washington, USA, September, 2017.
The course introduced IS methodologies and selected case studies, focusing on opportunities and challenges in applying IS in practice.
The IS offers tools for the selection of published scientific material and its use through plans, programs, intervention projects, models and protocols that assume diminishing inconsistencies and leverage results on a large scale in health science.
Implications for practice:
Multidisciplinary teams can benefit from IS training to address in a related way the gaps consistent with progress in the health sciences.
