Please note that the program might be updated prior to the Spring Meeting 2021.
Health Behaviors & Chronic Diseases
The Health Behaviors & Chronic Diseases (HBCD) program will be using this APH Spring Meeting to showcase several projects that have recently been awarded a HBCD grant. Awardees will be informing you on the project status and, more importantly, emphasize main gains for the research field and relevance to our program. In addition, we have invited a travel grant winner and a representative of a new HBCD Working Group to share their stories. Hence, we proudly announce the following presentations and presenters:
- Project presentation: The tobacco retail environment in Amsterdam BY Mirte Kuipers
- Project presentation: Inventory of HBCD devices & a case study of GPS trackers and wearable cameras BY Joreintje Mackenbach
- Project presentation: A short questionnaire to assess the diet quality of Amsterdam residents BY Mary Nicolaou
- Travel grant presentation: Broadening horizons in the Low Lands: HBCD-er travels to Ghent BY Alessandra Grasso
- Working group presentation: An introduction to the Chronic Diseases Working Group BY Joline Beulens.
The Mental Health parallel program session will focus on the implementation of research into clinical practice. Rianne Klaassen, child- and adolescent psychiatrist at De Bascule, will tell us about @ease: an initiative to provide accessible mental health services for young people with psychological and other problems. Christiaan Vis, researcher at the department of clinical psychology (VU), will tell us about the implementation of eMental health in clinical practice and will also share a plan for implementation research in the wider APH community. Some of our junior researchers who received a travel award last year will show us something about their trip. We will close the session by discussing how to spend our 2020 budget.

Societal Participation & Health
How to ensure sustainable implementation of your societal participation research in practice
Implementation has gained increasing attention in the past two decades. Today, various concepts and approaches are available to support sustainable implementation of research results into practice. Implementation approaches often include the involvement of the end-users in the development of innovative interventions. Nevertheless, most research results cannot be or are hardly ever implemented in daily practice after completion of research projects. The aim of this parallel program session is to discuss innovative methods to ensure sustainable implementation of your research results in practice, using a Societal Participation & Health (SP&H) context.
What will you learn?
- Grip on innovative methods to ensure sustainable implementation
- How to involve the enduser to ensure sustainable implementation of your research results
- Lessonslearned around the application of implementation approaches to enhance research impact
- How to apply implementation approaches to ensure sustainable implementation of your own research results
- Examples of what kind of implementation research projects are conducted in the SP&H theme.
SP&H invites you to think together about innovative implementation methods for your research results.
"Scale up" is about bringing health interventions (e.g. new treatments, new diagnostics, approaches in nutrition) from the trial and pilot phase to regional, national or even global scale. This parallel program session will focus on the research questions needed to be answered before scale-up can be initiated and achieved, the methods by which these questions would be addressed, and the translation of the results for policy makers. Such questions may include effectiveness under scale-up conditions; feasibility; cost-effectiveness and affordability taking into account health system weaknesses; patient and health care worker acceptability; monitoring of implementation; etc.
The session will consist of 15 min presentations of research done by APH members in this area, of policy translation, and of methodological issues, followed by discussion.
Aging & Later Life
Using complexity science in the older population
Healthcare in the older population is not a simple cause-effect relationship. Different components can influence the relationship and understanding these different components can be more effective than solely reducing problems to a 1-1 effect. Methods of complexity science can be used to understand and improve healthcare (interventions) in the older population. Complexity science studies systems which are continuously changing, non-linear (not solely 1 cause-effect) and have unpredictable outcomes. Quantitative and qualitative approaches are used to understand the complexity of these systems by studying the context, the relationships and dynamics between the components and the governance structures and rules.
In this parallel program session, we want to learn how complexity science can help to understand the complex relationships occurring in healthcare for the older population. How we can use this knowledge to design better interventions and make better predictions about the future. At the end of the session, we will have an interactive discussion to think about possibilities of including complexity science in our own (future) research and how it can improve the outcomes of our research.
Quality of Care
The quality of care can only be improved if findings from research eventually find their way in practice. Hence implementation is a core theme for members of the Quality of Care (QoC) program. At the QoC parallel program session we will explore implementation issues and share experiences (e.g. practical solutions, collaboration with non-academic partners and the public and private sector, funding, theoretical approaches, opting for implementation research versus contributing to the implementation of the results of research). Our discussions will feed into the action plan for an APH-QoC Center of expertise on Implementation and Valorisation. In this session we will combine discussion on this year’s implementation theme with presentations by last year’s QoC Innovation grant and Travel grant winners as well as some new members of QoC. In what way is implementation addressed in these projects and what common interests and collaborations can be explored regarding the QoC themes of: optimizing professional, institutional and healthcare system performance; striving for equity; achieving person-centered care; and patient safety?
During the parallel program session of Personalized Medicine (PM) we would like to take the time to reflect and flash forward. Over the past year PM has invested in opportunities to build new collaborations via research projects. We granted a high-risk grant for an innovative project. We furthermore awarded several travel grants to young researchers to conquer the world. We would like to update you on all interesting projects that have been developed over the past years. What was the initial plan, what is the current status, and is the collaboration a success?
We furthermore, would like to take the opportunity to, based on a network analyses of our member, discuss our future directions. Form these network analyses we learned that we have several unique selling points in respect to other PM programs and are off course curious what your ideas of the best direction are. So please be welcome to enjoy our past, celebrate our development, and inspire our future!
Translation of epidemiological research findings and methods to daily public health practice may be excruciatingly slow. Implementation science aims to rapidly move evidence into practice. Knowledge in this area may help methodologists to transfer their findings to actual daily practice. This parallel program session of the APH Methodology program will include a general introduction on how to implement epidemiological research findings.
This general introduction will be followed by two presentations on applied projects: 1. How to implement an effective intervention into daily practice? 2. Are prediction models being implemented in shared decision making?
The session will end with a discussion in small groups to explore attendants’ experiences with implementation research and to learn from their experiences.
