# The Science of Global Health Implementation

By the end of this course, students will:

Become familiar with key concepts in the emerging area of implementation science;

Build problem-solving and implementation capacity in local and international global health settings;

Develop generalisable insights and best implementation practices.

Who is this course for?

Researchers, practitioners and students in Europe, the US and around the world interested in successful implementation of complex health programs that involve multiple interrelated clinical and public health solutions. The target audience includes employees of Ministries of Health, program and project managers in non-governmental organisations and advanced undergraduate and graduate students in a variety of health disciplines (medicine, public health, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy) as well as in fields such as engineering, management and economics.

What do I need to know?

Students will come from a variety of disciplines, but the course is generally best suited for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

Course Structure

Chapter 0: Welcome

Students will discover the MOOC, its organisation and its main objectives.

They will be introduced to the notion of implementation science, its definition and how it can be a powerful tools for their research projects. They will discover practical examples of why we need implementation science.

Chapter 1: Preparing for change

Students will discover how to prepare their organisation for change.

Explanations will be given about the Lewin Stage Model, the theory of organisational readiness for change. Students will dive deeper into the topic with a case study.

Chapter 2: Designing change

Students will discover design thinking, a systematic way of introducing innovation into an organisation.

Many videos will present practical tools and methods (brainswarming, thinking hats, etc.). Design thinking will be illustrated with case presentation in the field of social innovation.

Chapter 3 : Implementing change

Students will explore tools and methods to implement their innovative solution (Implementation drivers and stages as well as the Hexagon Tools).

Students will dive deeper into the topic with a case study.

Chapter 4 : Sustaining change

Students will explore how to ensure that implementation continues over time.

They will discover key concepts such as the Run Charts, the wastes in Lean as well as the PDSA cycle and the Impact effort Matrix. A last cast study will be presented.

Chapter 5 : Final assessment

The last chapter will be dedicated to the final assessment.
