QUERI Implementation Practice Seminar

“Fit to stick” Innovation and Implementation in Health Care


by John Øvretveit, PhD
Seminar date: 3/13/2012

Description: Few interventions and innovations are able to cross the project//spread chasm. The fit between the innovation and the adopting service appears critical, but the paradox is that if it fits too well and is likely to be adopted with minor disruption, it may not make much improvement or be much of an innovation. This seminar considers issues in moving an innovation from pilot to phase 1 and phase 2 scale up stages, and ways to carry out actionable research into the strategies, structure and steps for spread.
