Health care is a knowledge intense sector, constantly shifting in relation to new evidence and internal and external incentives. Thus, individuals, teams, and organisations adopting an entrepreneurial approach can facilitate health care improvements, including strategies for knowledge implementation in clinical practice. While Sweden has a long history of entrepreneurship, there is also an increased focus on glocal knowledge implementation research, that is, innovative projects at a global and local level.

This course enables students to study entrepreneurship and knowledge implementation, considering the health care organisation in their own country as well as the Swedish context. Students will learn of both practical tools and theories of entrepreneurship and knowledge implementation, with authentic cases from contemporary research to illustrate. While the course is influenced by problem-based pedagogy, it employs lectures, seminars, workshops, readings, and student presentations to support learning.
