On-line Workshop on economic evaluations during implementation research in digital technologies for tuberculosis (Dr. Jonathon Campbell)
Course Aims and Participants
The Implementation Research for Digital Technologies and TB (IR4DTB) toolkit aims to build capacity in Implementation Research (IR) and help fill knowledge gaps around using and scaling up digital technologies for TB care. The interactive toolkit comprises six modules that reflect key steps in the IR process:
- Preparing for implementation research;
- Developing IR objectives and questions;
- Research methods;
- Data management and analysis;
- Planning and conducting IR;
- Knowledge translation.
The toolkit will be launched during a five days training workshop (Beijing, China, Novem- ber 23-27), organized by the Chinese Centre for DiseaseControl and Prevention and the Chinese Anti-TB Association, in collaboration with TDR and the WHO Global TB Programme.
The training will be held in person for staff from the national TB programme of China, in 4 project teams, and virtually for participants from Malaysia,Pakistan and Uzbekistan. The workshop will assist country teams to develop comprehensive IR proposals to study IR challenges related to theeffective scale-up of digital health technologies for TB care in their home countries.
