Advancing Implementation Science Efficiently – the Role of Implementation Laboratories
Jeremy Grimshaw, MBCHB, PHD, FRCGP, FCAHS
Seminar date: 9/1/2016
Description: Implementation science—the study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of clinical research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine practice—can inform health systems on how to reliably improve care and outcomes. However, research waste is undermining efforts to improve the effectiveness of health systems. The presentation will propose implementation laboratories as a potential solution to address this. Implementation laboratories involve close collaboration between health systems delivering implementation strategies and research teams can address health systems’ priorities and produce generalizable knowledge about factors—context, intervention design, and delivery—that could influence effectiveness of the implementation initiative.
Intended audience: Implementation researchers and implementation program deliverers working within the VA.
