Would you like to expand your implementation science network and join our AmsCIS team?

We offer a sharp implementation research network with a lot of experience and knowledge in the implementation world. You get the opportunity to work on interesting implementation network events, help organizing education sessions, update the well-searched knowledge hub and support fellow APH researchers with their implementation challenges. We meet with the team +/- once per month.

Don't hesitate to apply via We'd love to have more talented people on board!

Date: Tuesday 27 September | 14:05 – 15:00
Online webinar (Dutch)

Dr. Femke van Nassau and Anouk Driessen will engulf you with what is already known and what topics still need to be researched in more depth with regards to implementation (science). The past year the research group of the Dutch Implementation Initiative (NIC) has mapped (via a Delphi study) among implementation researchers what they think the gaps in knowledge are. Next to this, the implementation experts in the field were asked what they come across during implementation. This has led to a list of important aspects to research in order to implement better and improve the quality of care.

Free AmsCIS mini course for APH researchers
Date: Thursday September 29 2022 | 15:00-17:00
Online via Teams (ENG)

How do I optimize implementation throughout my study process so that society can benefit? How do I evaluate if my knowledge/research product has been used? For optimal knowledge utilization, it is important to think about the implementation of your results right from the start and throughout your entire research project. It is now a standard subject that Dutch subsidy providers, such as ZonMw and NWO, demand you to think about and elaborate on. This requires a well-thought-out implementation plan, that we can help you with!

In this mini course, you will learn:

  • What knowledge utilization/implementation is;
  • How to effectively support, optimize and evaluate knowledge utilization/implementation in your study design;
  • Tips for writing a knowledge utilization/implementation paragraph for your research proposal.

Doing good research is highly challenging. And then you need to publish it. Finding a journal that publishes your implementation research is not straightforward and several choices need to be made. What are your options?

Our implementation expert Christiaan Vis provides you with tips on finding the right journal, framing your research to your audience, examples of journals that publish implementation research and improving the 'findability' of your research. You can read find it on our knowledge hub by clicking here.
ZonMw has recently launched two grant rounds on implementation of appropriate care, that may be of interest to you.

1. Implementation of knowledge and innovations for appropriate care: Grant applications submitted within this call focus on the implementation, dissemination or translation of knowledge and interventions aimed at appropriate care. Deadline: September 13, 2022.
2. Implementation science practitioner fellowships: This call for grants offers professionals the opportunity to be trained as “implementation science practitioners”: a recent (inter)nationally recognized job profile within the field of implementation and within healthcare. The fellowship training lasts 1.5 years and consists of a training programme, intervision, coaching and working on a case. Deadline: October 4, 2022.
Now is the time to nominate individuals who show significant promise as policy-oriented health care leaders and would benefit from a year in the United States conducting comparative research, honing their leadership skills, and building a robust network for ongoing exchange and collaboration. 

Harkness Fellows are midcareer professionals in government, policy, health services research, clinical practice, health care management, and journalism, among other fields. People belonging to racial or ethnic groups that are underrepresented in the fields of health policy and care delivery are strongly encouraged to apply.  

Make a nomination hereThe 2023–24 Harkness Fellowships application will remain open through November 1, 2022.
