NHLBI Global Health Implementation Research Webinar Series - Tuesday, May 2, 2017 (9:00 AM - 10:30 AM ET)

By Blythe Beecroft | 21 Apr, 2017

The Center for Translation Research and Implementation Science (CTRIS) in the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the NIH, will host the new NHLBI Global Health Implementation Research Webinar Series. This webinar series is part of CTRIS’ efforts to help expand global research and training collaborations, and make readily accessible to investigators and practitioners in Low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), emergent knowledge and model studies relevant to the conduct of dissemination and implementation research in global NCDs. The webinars are intended for early-stage investigators, established researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and anyone interested in conducting implementation research in low-resource settings


LMICs are experiencing a growing burden of NCDs and confront challenges of leadership, lack of local data and evidence, and gaps in implementation of successful interventions. To address these challenges, an interdisciplinary training program, the Public Health Leadership and Implementation Academy (PH-LEADER) for NCDs was designed to create a new generation of health leaders to meet the health needs of the 21st century. The year-long program is directed at mid-career, high-potential public health professionals from LMICs who are involved in NCDs prevention and control. Academy participants engage in sessions designed to cultivate the soft and hard skills required to inspire and lead change within their organizations and beyond. Presenters will provide an overview of the program, outcomes and impacts so far, and perspectives on developing innovative models for implementation research capacity building in LMIC settings.
