Are you concerned about the impact of your research on real patients and the barriers to integration of your research outputs in clinical services?

On Friday 17 January, the HIST cluster will host two talks describing robust implementation science approaches in the area of eHealth.

Prof. Riper and Mr Vis will discuss ImpleMentAll, a H2020 project that aims to provide an evidence-based answer to this problem through the development, application, and evaluation of tailored implementation strategies in a natural laboratory of on-going eHealth implementation initiatives in the EU and beyond.

Prof. Dr. Heleen Riper, PhD is full professor of E-Mental-Health (eMH) and works at the Department of Clinical, Developmental and Neuro Psychology, Section Clinical Psychology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and is honorary professor Telepsychiatry at the University of Southern Denmark.

Her research is focused on the development, evaluation and implementation of innovative E-Health applications to promote the prevention and treatment of common mental disorders.

Mr. Christiaan Vis is Research Associate and Ph.D. candidate in Implementation Research in the field of eMental Health. His research focuses on processes that play a role in the implementation and up-scaling of evidence-based psychological interventions in routine mental healthcare practice.

More specifically, his research focuses on the interplay of effectiveness and implementation research including health benefits, patient safety, perspectives of patients and healthcare professionals, organisational changes, costs and the wider context including reimbursement, legal, and ethical issues.
