Potenziamento delle capacità scientifiche

Panoramica

Il potenziamento delle capacità scientifiche è uno degli elementi costitutivi dello Swiss Learning Health System (SLHS). I partner del progetto si impegnano a formare una nuova generazione di ricercatori che intenda lo studio dei sistemi e servizi sanitari come un compito cooperativo, che coinvolga i diversi stakeholder. La disponibilità di ricercatori qualificati e capaci, in grado di comprendere e di condurre studi di alto livello scientifico che superino i confini tra prassi, politica e ricerca, è una condizione indispensabile per il successo e la sostenibilità del Learning Health System.

Borse di studio

In questa prima fase, l’SLHS offre venti borse di studio di dottorato (per il periodo 2017-20), finanziate dagli istituti partner e da un fondo apposito di swissuniversities. Le borse di studio vengono assegnate congiuntamente dall’SLHS e dalla Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+), al fine di sfruttare le strutture, i fondi e il know-how in fatto di formazione dei dottorandi già disponibili presso questa istituzione accademica. I dottorandi che beneficiano di una borsa di studio congiunta SLHS-SSPH+ potranno quindi approfittare anche dell'ampia gamma di programmi strutturati e di elevata qualità offerti dal network della SSPH+.

Le borse di studio per dottorandi SLHS-SSPH+ perseguono i seguenti obiettivi:

  • formare una nuova generazione di giovani ricercatori creativi e innovativi, che siano in grado di fronteggiare le sfide attuali e future del settore sanitario e di tradurre conoscenze e idee in prodotti e servizi volti a rafforzare i sistemi sanitari;
  • sviluppare un sistema di ricerca e di formazione dei dottorandi strutturato e di altissima qualità, integrando i programmi didattici attuali con le conoscenze e abilità essenziali per un Learning Health System;
  • migliorare le opportunità di carriera dei giovani ricercatori in campo accademico e non accademico, stimolando in loro una mentalità orientata all’innovazione tramite un programma di formazione interdisciplinare di altissima qualità.

Programma di corsi SLHS

Studenti di dottorato

Uno dei principali obiettivi dello Swiss Learning Health System (SLHS) è formare giovani ricercatori in grado di comprendere e di condurre studi di alto livello scientifico che superino i confini tra prassi, politica e ricerca. I dottorandi dell’SLHS contribuiscono attivamente a garantire l’apprendimento ciclico che caratterizza il progetto, elaborando Policy Briefs e partecipando agli Stakeholder Dialogues.

Adrian Spiess

Adrian Spiess

Adrian develops his PhD project in interaction and in the context of WHO’s call for action Rehabilitation 2030, collaborating closely with the Swiss Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (SGPMR), the Swiss Paraplegic Research, its SwiSCI studies, as well as the ICF Research Branch. The focus is on Rehabilitation Policy, Economics and Financing along the continuum of care and over the life span in Switzerland.


Alessio De Santo

Alessio De Santo

Alessio’s main research interests reside in information systems, more precisely in the elaboration of decision support systems; embracing the areas of knowledge management and decision-making.


Ana Quiroga

Ana Quiroga

Ana’s research focuses on the concept of Health Insurance Literacy (HIL), specifically its conceptualization and assessment within the Swiss Health System. As part of her PhD research, she aims at developing and validating a measurement tool that will allow to assess HIL that is specific to the Swiss context. In a following step, she will look at the distribution HIL in Switzerland and its impact on health insurance choices, health services utilization and related health outcomes.​​


Aron Baumann

Aron Baumann

Aron is interested in the relevance and use of evidence in health policy-making. He wonders: How important is research evidence for health policy-makers? How does research evidence influence outcomes of health policy-making? What factors are promoting or hindering the use of evidence in health policy-making?


Cecilia Luini

Cecilia Luini

Cecilia holds a Master in Health Economics from Erasmus University Rotterdam and worked, after her studies, as consultant for the pharmaceutical industry. During her PhD, she will focus on the analysis and innovation of health service delivery with special attention to the challenges posed by emerging clusters of patients (e.g. frail patients). Her main research interests lie in the areas of health policy and management as well as in applied health economics.

 


Chantal Arditi

Chantal Arditi

Chantal Arditi has been working since 2006 as a research associate at the Institute of social and preventive medicine in Lausanne, conducting satisfaction and experience surveys, comprehensive and systematic reviews (e.g. Cochrane), and healthcare evaluations of complex interventions (e.g. chronic disease management programs). Her PhD project will focus on patient-reported outcomes measures (PROMs) & patient-reported experiences measures (PREMs).


Dario Picecchi

Dario Picecchi

Dario's research is in the areas of public law and health law. He is writing a PhD-thesis about the cost-effectiveness requirement under the Swiss Health Insurance Act (KVG).


Eliane Maalouf

Eliane Maalouf

Eliane's contribution to the SLHS is foreseen in the design and development of the data warehouse. The warehouse will integrate heterogeneous data sources relevant to the Swiss public health domain and health services research, and it will model the knowledge extracted from these sources. The realization of this warehouse poses many research challenges in computer science, like integrating unstructured sources, allowing search and data analysis capabilities on the extracted knowledge alongside data management and protection.


Evaristo Roncelli

Evaristo Roncelli

Evaristo's research interests focus on 1) policies and tools to improve integration and collaboration in the nursing home sector, as well as on 2) premium subsidies and other support mechanisms to low income households in the statutory health insurance.


Kathryn Dawson-Townsend

Kathryn Dawson-Townsend

Kathryn is interested in researching health inequalities among older adults in Switzerland, focusing on the areas of social capital, loneliness and social isolation. In 2017 she co-authored the first policy brief of the SLHS: Strengthening social participation of socially disadvantaged older adults in Switzerland.

Growing research shows that loneliness and social isolation are important contributors to negative health outcomes.  Even though these conditions can affect all ages, older individuals may more frequently suffer from social isolation and loneliness due to life-changing events, including the loss of close friends and relatives, or retirement.

Social participation has been proposed as a means to reduce loneliness and social isolation and associated negative health impacts. Social participation can take place through various activities, which can include contributing to society, helping others and interacting with others, either on a specific activity such as organized sports, or a non-specific activity.

This project seeks to shed light on the relationship of different forms of social participation and its association with health outcomes and life satisfaction among the elderly population in Switzerland. Results of this project will not only be important for research in the field but will also have important implications for the development of programs that encourage social participation among the elderly in Switzerland.


Lea Ettlin

Lea Ettlin

Lea’s PhD projects focus on the conservative non-pharmacological treatment pathway of patients with Knee Osteoarthritis in Switzerland, concerning international clinical guidelines. The implementation of those guidelines in clinical practice should help the Swiss health care system to provide the best treatment options for patients with knee osteoarthritis.


Michael Stucki

Michael Stucki

Michael’s main research interests are factors affecting health care expenditures in Switzerland and general cost-of-illness studies. He is currently working on a decomposition of Swiss health care expenditures into various dimensions, including diseases, affected health care services, and demographic groups. Results from this research are expected to provide insights into the driving factors behind changes in health care expenditures over time.


Nahara Martínez González

Nahara Martínez González

Nahara conducts systematic reviews and meta-analyses in topics pertaining to health services research in primary care. She currently focusses on shared decision making for prostate cancer, and on the prescribing and use of antibiotics for primary care patients with respiratory tract infections. Her work will evolve to encompass primary research studies of the quality of prescribing and use of antibiotics in primary care in Switzerland - as a contribution to fighting antibiotic resistance.


Nicola Aebi

Nicola Aebi

Nicola’s PhD focuses on an evaluation of a project that works on the interface of mental and somatic health at hospital-level. Increased rehospitalization and longer hospital stays are major issues in patients affected by psychosomatic disorders and should therefore be tackled in early stages. Her PhD will gain insights on how the project was conducted and what impact it has on patients.


Sabine Baggenstos

Sabine Baggenstos

Under current canon law, any person suffering from permanent impotence is enjoined from marrying in church – which for Roman Catholics actually is the only marriage both valid and desirable. However, this legislation contradicts other national and international law such as the Swiss Federal Constitution and the UN Convention on Disability. Sabine`s aim and intention of her PhD thesis is to discuss and develop possible solutions to solve this problem.


Santhosh Mannamplackal

Santhosh Mannamplackal

Santhosh’s research interests lie in public and health management. His Ph.D. project will focus on the rehabilitation sector in the Swiss healthcare system, by analyzing different services and best-practices (actual trends), and highlighting the consolidation of networks and the emergence of integrated delivery systems.


Yael Rachamin

Yael Rachamin

Yael’s PhD research focuses on prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in Swiss primary care based on electronic medical records of general practitioners (www.fireproject.ch). Besides describing preventive activities of general practitioners (i.e. assessment and treatment of metabolic risk factors), she aims to assess guideline concordance of these activities and to find determinants thereof.


Yanmei Liu

Yanmei Liu

Yanmei works in the area of applied health economics and health policy evaluation, with a main focus on health insurance systems. In particular, her research concerns the determinants of health insurance choices, the consequences and impacts of health insurance decisions on health care utilization.


Zora Föhn

Zora Föhn

Zora's research interests revolve around the measurement and the empirical analysis of patient preferences for newly emerging models of primary outpatient health care. Her PhD project includes the design and conduct of an experimental survey among a representative sample of the Swiss population. With regard to the analysis, she places a special focus on comparing preferences of sub-populations (e.g., groups with different health states, health literacy levels or age). From the empirical results, Zora will derive political implications for the Swiss healthcare system.

Her research is part of the Health2040 research project, focusing on preferences of the Swiss population and the Swiss health professionals regarding newly emerging models of outpatient healthcare. Further information about the project can be found on the website www.health2040.ch .
