He also holds a post-doctor position (equivalent to ‘fellow’) in the Patient Safety Programme of the Western Norway Regional Health Authority. Since July, Arvid has been working in the Centre for Implementation Science at King's College London as a visiting researcher: he will return to Norway towards the end of September.
His research focuses on surgical safety checklists, handover protocols, discharge checklists from medical wards and checklists for patients, using both quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
In this talk, he will be presenting the implementation science work he has been undertaking in Norway.

KIS is part of the Centre for Implementation Science at the National Institute for Health Research [NIHR] Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research [CLAHRC] South London, also based at King's College London. The CIS is home to a team of expert researchers, including health economists and statisticians. They investigate how best to help implement evidence-based practice and research results within health services in south London and further afield.
