Using Implementation Science to Move Innovations into Practice in VA Health Care Settings

Implementation Science: What Is It and Why Should I Care?

by A. Rani Elwy, PhD, MSc ; Eric Richardson, PhD
Seminar date: 6/3/2024

Description: A mini-course that is broadly applicable to VA employees to introduce them to implementation science – what it is, why they need it, and how they can use implementation science to move their innovations into VA practice settings and prepare for spread. The presenters will engage employees across the VA healthcare system to promote a culture of knowledge translation. Following the pre-implementation, implementation, and sustainment phases of the QUERI Implementation Roadmap, the presenters will introduce VA employees to ways they can engage critical stakeholders, identify current gaps in VA practice, define success, and determine how Veterans will benefit long-term from the implementation of innovations.
