Ritchie MJ, Dollar KM, Kearney LK, Kirchner JE. Research and services partnerships: Responding to needs of clinical operations partners: transferring implementation facilitation knowledge and skills. Psychiatric services (Washington, D.C.). 2014 Feb 1; 65(2):141-3.
Abstract: This column describes a facilitation strategy that incorporates evidence-based implementation knowledge and practice-based wisdom. The authors also describe a partnership between research and clinical operations leaders in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to bridge the gap between implementation knowledge and its use. The initial product of the partnership, the Implementation Facilitation Training Manual: Using External and Internal Facilitation to Improve Care in the Veterans Health Administration, is a resource that can be used by others to guide implementation efforts.
