Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science (CMIPS) & Yale Center for Implementation Science (YCIS): "The Science and Art of Change: Approaches to Innovation in Global Health and Development”
Innovation, improvement, scale-up and system-strengthening are essential to effective global health and development. This session will review the related methodological landscape which includes implementation science, quality improvement, design thinking, participatory action research, democratic experimentalism, health impact assessment, and more. The Science and Art of Change framework under development aims to integrate, differentiate and simplify these approaches to change, so that people, communities, organizations, local governments and other stakeholders can work together across sectors toward thriving, sustainability, and self-reliance – both in the US and around the world. Examples will be drawn from experience underway in health care and public health, post-disaster restoration, rural development, urbanization and cities, mental health, and migration.
