Knowledge Translation Unit PACK Open Day

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 South African, Brazilian and Nigerian public health systems.

As a satellite session to the Global Evidence Summit, 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. 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.
