Closing the evidence-practice gap on NCDs: Translation, transfer and sustainability for comprehensive responses across Europe

02 October 2020 @ 11:30 - 13:00

The session is part of the online conference ‘EHFG 2020: Dancing with elephants: New partnerships for health, democracy, business’ organized by the European Health Forum Gastein. 

On the surface, the steps to closing the gap between research findings and existing clinical practice are simple: 1. Identifying good practice; 2. Piloting; 3. Scaling-up. However, promising initiatives – and the big players overseeing them – often get stuck at the first step. At the same time, mechanisms like crowdfunding and startups have proven to mark a shift from the few major players towards community driven initiatives, often based on ideas and passion.

This session will showcase how ideas and passion on a small scale can be transferred to cross-national learning while respecting national interests, and explore the success factors to piloting, transferring and sustaining good practices that benefit patients affected by chronic disease. We will showcase outcomes of the CHRODIS+ Joint Action, focused on supporting Member States in scaling up practices aimed at reducing the burden of non-communicable diseases, and discuss how learnings on both the successes and barriers from the Joint Action can be taken forward to help health stakeholders achieve policy impact in the future. Join us to be guided through the potential dancing steps of ambitious partnerships in the battle against chronic disease!
