Implementation science (IS) is the scientific study of methods and strategies that facilitate the uptake of evidence-based practice and research into regular use by practitioners and decision makers. This one-hour webinar will cover the ins and outs of IS, introducing theory and demonstrating practice with two case studies.
Dr. Lindsay Nettlefold will provide a brief introduction to IS, exploring what it is and why it’s important, defining key terms and introducing important theories, models and frameworks that can be used to implement, scale-up and evaluate interventions.
Dr. Sarah Munro will present a hybrid effectiveness-implementation trial that involved embedding contraception shared decision-making tools in clinical practice.
Dr. Sonia Singh will present a multiple case study of the implementation and spread of an evidence-based model of care to prevent recurrent fractures in BC. These examples will demonstrate the importance of understanding the implementation context when translating evidence-based tools into clinical care and illustrate the practical strategies for designing implementation science trials.
After this webinar, you will be able to:
· Define implementation science and relevant terms.
· Describe key theories, models and frameworks used to implement, scale and evaluate clinical interventions.
· Illustrate the process through examples from two case studies.
The three presentations will run for 45 minutes with the final 15 minutes for questions.
