The Knowledge Sessions: Implementation Science - what can veterinary medicine learn from human medicine?

July 6, 2020

How can we express evidence in a way that means people will engage with it and understand it? How do team dynamics and individual context influence whether evidence is used appropriately and fully? What can we learn from the experience in human medicine?

These questions and more are explored in this roundtable discussion featuring:

  • Trish Greenhalgh, Professor of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford
  • Dr Zoe Belshaw, internal medicine specialist, Centre for Evidence-Based Veterinary Medicine at the University of Nottingham/PDSA
  • Dr Louise Buckley, RVN and Lecturer, University of Edinburgh/Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies
