Nicole Yaneza-Bagatsing is a civic leader originally from the Philippines. She is passionate about youth empowerment and mental health advocacy. 

Implementation Integrity: How do we make change happen? 

During the lunch break delegates are invited to join us for a "fireside chat" exploring ways we can ensure reform is implemented effectively and sustainably.

Hear from two representitives from the Centre for Evidence and Implementation:

Dr Robyn Mildon, Executive Director, is an internationally recognised figure in the field of implementation science, evidence synthesis and knowledge translation.

Dr Anna Williamson, Director, is a behavioural scientist with over 20 years’ experience in health research and evaluation and high-level expertise in knowledge translation and implementation science.
