Policy and practice transfer

In order for public health to be able to fulfill its claim of being "science and practice" at the same time, the BSPH must be relevant for practice (at the public health service, in municipalities and settings such as neighborhoods, schools or companies) and for politics (at international, European, national and regional level). The aim is to create a reciprocal science-practice transfer and, on the one hand, to impart knowledge and, on the other hand, to take up questions and practical experiences.

The BSPH Directorate works closely with institutions such as the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA), the Federal Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (Kassenärztliche Bundesvereinigung), the Federal Medical Association (Bundesärztekammer) and the Berlin Medical Association (Berliner Ärztekammer) as well as the health insurance(associations). They sit on advisory boards such as "Healthy - for life" at the BMBF, in the Health Topic Check at the Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG), on the Advisory Board of the Independent Patient Counseling Service pursuant to § 65b of the German Social Code, Book V, in the Advisory Commission on Health Reporting and Monitoring, on Diabetes Surveillance or the Genetic Diagnostics Commission at the RKI, on the Evaluation Advisory Board, Committee and Steering Committee of gesundheitsziele. de, in committees at the Federal Center for Health Education (BZgA), the German Association of Self-Help Groups (DAG SHG) or at the Scientific Institute of the AOK.

Through the participation of the BSPH in the annual public health congress "Armut und Gesundheit" (Poverty and Health) with more than 2000 international participants in Berlin, current research findings and expertise are linked to a broad field of public health practice. In addition, the BSPH platform serves as a coordinating and reinforcing network for the other events of the participating institutions, such as the regular Spreestadt Forum at the TU (MiG) or the Berlin Epidemiologic Methods Colloquium (BEMC) of the Charité (IPH), as well as other lecture series and summer schools and intensive short courses.

At the BSPH

Improved translation of research results into prevention, health promotion and health care is achieved via science-practice transfer with relevant stakeholders in the health care system.

The Round Table Berlin - Health care services for victims of domestic and sexualized violence (RTB)

The Round Table Berlin - Health care services for victims of domestic and sexualized violence (RTB) was founded in 2019 under the initiative of the Berlin Senate Department responsible for Health. In a joint declaration of cooperation, the 29 member organizations of the RTB agreed to implement and strengthen compliance with the WHO guidelines on responding to intimate partner violence and sexual violence among the health care providers in Berlin. The Berlin School of Public Health, represented by Prof. Dr. Dr Hürrem Tezcan-Güntekin, has been an active partner from the start.
