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.

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.
