Detailed information about this course:

Description

Those of us who work in health care know that promising research results or evidence-based guidelines do not easily become standard of clinical care. Therefore, a next step, also known as implementation and dissemination, is needed after the results of a RCT or guidelines are published. The field of implementation science has emerged, and this multidisciplinary field with professionals from medicine, nursing, psychology, pharmacy, engineering, aims to enhance the uptake of research-based knowledge in real-world settings.

The course includes lectures, guest speakers, and interactive workshops. During these workshops, participants work on a proposal for an implementation (research) project. The proposals will be presented on the last day.


Topics for lectures/curriculum

  • Introduction to Implementation Science
  • Frameworks, and models in implementation science
  • Individual and contextual influences on implementation
  • Effective implementation & use of change strategies
  • Implementation research & outcomes
  • De-Implementation (de-adoption)
  • Publishing implementation research

Objectives

At the end of this course, students are able to:

  • Identify and understand relevant terms, definitions, and concepts in implementation science
  • Understand the role of theory, frameworks, and models in implementation science
  • Identify the role of intervention adaptation, fidelity, and stakeholder engagement in implementation science
  • Apply study designs and research methods commonly used to answer scientific questions in implementation science
  • Identify strategies for increasing the adoption, implementation, and sustainability of evidence-based healthcare improvement and disease prevention interventions in a variety of healthcare and public health settings
