SLHS participates in the 2024 Research Symposium Health Lucerne
On January 31st, researchers from Lucerne, as part of the activities of the Gesundheitscluster Lucerne, gathered for an insightful research symposium. The focus of the event was on promoting partnerships and interdisciplinarity in health research in the Lucerne region.
The Swiss Learning Health System (SLHS) is an example of a research network that aims to bring together different experts and disciplines to systematically address health challenges. The following SLHS projects were highlighted:
Natalie Messerli (UNILU) presented first findings on “Fostering Evidence-Based Health Policy Making in Switzerland: Lessons from the Swiss Learning Health System”.
Cinzia Zeltner (UNILU) showcased her research “Wie wird Task Shifting in der ambulanten Grundversorgung umgesetzt? Erste Ergebnisse aus «Health2040»”.
Sophie K. Brandt (UNILU) reported on her study “Professional beliefs of physicians and allied health professionals and their willingness to promote health in primary care: a cross-sectional survey”.
Anna Romanova (UNILU) exposed the details of the project “Co-creation of a Future Outpatient Primary Healthcare Model in Switzerland”.
Carina Prelucan (UNILU) displayed findings from “Patient and public involvement (PPI) in health services research (HSR): A survey study among Swiss health services researchers”.
Dr. Sarah Mantwill, the SLHS Research Coordinator, contributed to the panel discussion on the future directions for the Gesundheitscluster Zentralschweiz (the Health Cluster of Central Switzerland).
The symposium was co-organized by the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU), the University of Lucerne (UNILU) and XUND Bildungszentrum Gesundheit Zentralschweiz. The event provided a platform for learning about ongoing research in the Greater Lucerne area and fostered essential connections among local researchers.
