National Meeting 2007

2010 — Workshop on Implementation Science

Sales AE (VA Puget Sound HCS) , Stetler C (Consultant), Titler M (University of Iowa), Francis J (VACO)

Workshop Objectives:
This workshop will address essential mechanisms for building a program of research in implementation science, and describe contextual factors to consider when planning implementation studies. Three 20 minute papers will be presented followed by a moderated panel of the presenters with interactive discussion by workshop participants. Researchers have identified gaps in providing current, evidence-based care to all patients. A variety of methods to implement evidence-based care have been tested, but none work across all groups and all conditions. As a result, there is still a critical need to learn more about what methods of implementation work when, focusing on the role of context (individual, team, and organizational environment) in implementation of evidence-based practice. Objectives: 1. To provide an overview of implementation science in relation to “traditional” types of research. 2. To describe the role of researchers linked to a practice system in the context of implementation science. 3. To describe mechanisms for building a program of research in implementation science. 4. To identify essential contextual factors to include in testing implementation interventions.

Activities:
Welcome and introduction (Joseph Francis), Paper on Implementation Science and the Role of the Researcher (Cheryl Stetler), Paper on Building a Program of Research in Implementation Science (Marita Titler), Paper on Organizational Measures in Implementation Science (Anne Sales). Panel of the 3 paper presenters moderated by Joe Francis with facilitated participant discussion of issues and challenges in implementation science.

Target Audience:
Researchers interested in implementation science, particularly nurse researchers.

Assumed Audience Familiarity with Topic:
Assume basic health services research training; otherwise no assumption about familiarity with topic.
