The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) in collaboration with the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases will be holding a 5-day implementation science school in Campinas, Brazil from 6-10 November 2018.

A total of approximately 70 participants (35 from Brazil, 35 from other countries) will be accepted. Eligible participants will mainly include early- and mid-career researchers who have:
  • Completed and/or are undertaking postgraduate coursework/researchers studies related to one of the health sciences or public health (or another relevant field)
  • PhDs who have graduated in the last 3 years are especially encouraged to apply
  • Other relevant graduates with up to 5 years of relevant research experience are also encouraged to apply
Applications will be reviewed by the event organisers and successful applicants will have the costs of their travel and accommodation over the course of the training provided.

Full programme, lectures and course structure will be available soon.
You will be asked to provide the following information during this process:
  1. Your personal details
  2. A structured project abstract of an implementation science project you are working on/would like to work on in future, detailing:
    • Project title and institution/organisation
    • The implementation problem or gap that your project is seeking to address (eg. limited access to guideline recommended treatments)
    • The size of the problem or issue in your country or other similar countries (based on literature, your past research or information from experts)
    • Whether or not you have undertaken a problem analysis to identify the barriers and enablers to address your identified evidence-implementation gap. If so, what were the findings (briefly)? (eg. out of pocket costs for medicines are high)
    • Implementation strategies being considered to overcome the problem (e.g. pilot study of a low cost combination pill)
    • Research methods you did/will you use to evaluate these strategies (eg. pilot RCT, formative qualitative study)
