Tuesday February 3rd: Workshops

Workshop 1: (Kuling 1)

Title: EBM and Chronic Disease

Presenter: Victor Montori

About the workshop: I will discuss how the epidemic of chronic multi morbidity challenges the application of evidence-based medicine. We will also discuss a potential solution, minimally disruptive medicine.

Workshop 2: (Storm)

Title: Engaging Practitioners, Patients, Policymakers, and the Public in Using Best Pre-appraised Evidence Services

Presenter: Brian Haynes

About the workshop: Few practitioners take the time to access the evidence for clinical decisions; patients often get misinformation or conflicting information or are not able to understand the information they receive, or are unable or unwilling to discuss it with their practitioner; policymakers, practitioners, patients and the public are often uncoordinated in their communications. Participants in this workshop will consider, create, develop, and share their plans for engaging practitioners, patients, policymakers and the public in the use of current best evidence for health and health care decisions.

Workshop 3: (Kuling 2)

Title: Adaptations of evidence-based programs:  A curse or a blessing?

Presenters: Ulrica von Thiele Schwarz, Henna Hasson & Knut Sundell

About the workshop: The aim of the workshop is to further our understanding of the adaptation and adherence dilemma.  We will do this by presenting examples of the effects of adaptations and how adaptations is approached by researchers and practitioners. We will also invite the audience to reflect on a model for how managers and professionals in health and social care can approach adaptations during implementations of evidence-methods in practice, that currently is being developed.

Workshop 4: (Kuling 1)

Title: Functional Family Therapy (FFT) & Scandinavia – a match? / State of the Implementation of FFT in Sweden, Norway & Denmark.

Presenters: Dagfinn Mørkrid Thøgersen, Gunilla Anderson, Bianca Albers.

About the workshop:

  • A brief introduction to Functional Family Therapy will be given. Through this presentation we will highlight specific elements of the treatment program that have impact on the implementation of the model.
  • Presentation of the implementation processes and current status of FFT in each of the Scandinavian countries.
  • Thematic discussions will then follow on:
    • It’s more than just a model!
      • Investigating the relationship between attitudes, language and theory to the learning and application of an evidence-based family therapy model like FFT.
  • Preparing for implementation of FFT:
    • Site readiness considerations
    • The role of a local/national purveyor assisting this process
  • Cultural considerations and considerations on the language of trainings, manuals and supervision:
    • What is the cost-benefit of translating manuals and establishing local trainers and supervisors
  • Ensuring the model matches the context:
    • Implementing FFT within different treatment systems
    • Developing and adapting the model to be applied to new target populations
  • Sustainability
    • What factors are related to enduring FFT teams?

NOTE: This workshop is planned to be held in Scandinavian languages, but welcomes participants not proficient in the Scandinavian languages as there will be possibilities for brief translations to English.

Workshop 5: (Kuling 2)

Title: Who leads and how? – Leadership and implementation.

Presenters: Henna Hasson, Anne Richter, Mandus Frykman & Ulrica von Thiele Schwarz

About the workshop: The workshop starts with a presentation of current concepts and frameworks for leadership and implementation. A discussion with the audience about leadership will be conducted right after the short presentation. 

Thereafter, examples of research on the topic of leadership and implementation will be given in three short presentations. The first presentation will focus on the role that leadership played in initiation, implementation and sustainment of multi-professional teamwork in emergency care. The main findings will be discussed together with the audience with the focus on questions: who leads, how and when. The second presentation will show case findings from a discourse analysis of leaders role and activities in implementation of evidence-based practice in social care. This presentation highlights leaders’ perspective on implementation leadership, which also will be discussed with the audience. Third, the relative importance of transformational leadership behaviors and intervention specific leadership behaviors for the outcomes of interventions will be presented. This presentation has a more theoretical perspective and the audience will be given opportunities to interact and report their perspectives on the topic. The session concludes with an iterative part where the participants together with the presenters work with two topics on implementation leadership: – the role of managers and other leaders and how should line leaders be supported in implementation.

Workshop 6: (Storm)

Title: Tools for tailoring. How to develop implementation interventions.

Presenters: Signe Flottorp & Michel Wensing

About the workshop:

The aim of this workshop is to present tools that may be helpful for people interested in guideline implementation and quality improvement. We will discuss how to tailor interventions to address determinants of practice (factors that might facilitate or impede desired practice). After the presentations in plenary, we will work in small groups. The groups will apply the tools on a topic relevant for the group members.
