It is our pleasure to announce the 4th SPINE Summer School.
The topic of this year’s summer course that will take place in Basel, Switzerland, from August 20-24, 2018, is:
“Leading health care by Developing, Implementing and Evaluating Innovations in Service Delivery”
Health and health services research creates value when newly developed interventions are effective and implemented and scaled up across multiple sites. Innovations in service delivery are challenging to develop, implement and evaluate. Indeed not only sound knowledge about the active mechanisms of the service innovation, but also the methodology to conduct research in the field are required. The 2018 SPINE summer school will bring international scholars, Postdocs and PhD students together to address those challenges by developing, writing-up and presenting research projects of innovations in service delivery (ISD).
The 2018 SPINE summer school mixes lectures on methodological key challenges for ISD projects, active group work of summer school participants lead by senior researchers from different fields and formative feedback from peers and experienced researchers to push the development of research projects.
The English language course is led by Hayden B. Bosworth, PhD, Professor of Population Health Sciences, Medicine, Psychiatry, and Nursing, Duke University Medical Center | Associate Chair of Education for the Department of Population Health Sciences | Associate Director of the Center for Health Service Research in Primary Care Center of Innovation (COIN), Durham VA Health Care System & Leah L.

The Swiss PhD Platform In Nursing Science Education (SPINE) is an academic collaboration between the Institute of Higher Education and Research in Healthcare – IUFRS from the Lausanne University and Lausanne University Hospital, and the Pflegewissenschaft – Nursing Science (INS) from the University of Basel. The goal of SPINE is to establish a sufficient pool of PhD-prepared nurses to assume leadership roles in advancing health research, clinical care delivery, policy, healthcare management, and education, as well as to prepare subsequent generations of healthcare professionals to meet the challenges of the healthcare system of tomorrow. As an educational program, SPINE provides basic and advanced formal research training, offers training in transferable skills, fosters personal and professional development, and opportunities to form doctoral committees with expert professors.
