Evidence into policy into practice: Showcasing the global Practical Approach to Care Kit (PACK) programme - session 1

The PACK programme tackles health systems issues so that primary care practitioners can deliver evidence-based care that is policy aligned and feasible for their setting. Developed by the University of Cape Town Lung Institute’s Knowledge Translation Unit (KTU), it is currently being implemented in collaboration with the BMJ and local role-players in the South African, Brazilian and Nigerian public-health systems. 

The KTU in partnership with the Western Cape Department of Health invite you to a PACK Open Day at the KTU’s home, the University of Cape Town Lung Institute in Mowbray, not far from the Summit venue. You will have the opportunity to attend presentations about the unit’s guideline-development work and implementation research, view displays showcasing the programme’s training and health-systems components, participate in PACK interactive training sessions and meet the developers, implementers and researchers of the programme – the KTU and BMJ teams, country localisers, policy makers and end-users.
