Implementation Science fundamentals
Implementation science is important for achieving lasting impact
What is implementation science?
Implementation science is the process of putting to use or integrating new practices within a setting, be it service or practice or policy change.
Implementation science focuses on taking interventions that have been found to be effective using methodologically rigorous designs (e.g., randomised controlled trials, quasi-experimental designs, hybrid designs) under real-world conditions, and integrating them into practice settings using deliberate strategies and processes.
With the advent of implementation science, there has been a plethora of models and processes developed and tested that show the necessary factors to consider both in preparing for and in doing your implementation.
This workshop focuses on how to move existing evidence into a practice of policy setting.
- Learn about the models and frameworks for implementation.
- Understand the terminology, definitions and processes required for effective implementation.
- Learn what makes for effective implementation, teams, processes, factors, strategies and evaluation.
- Understand the mechanisms and how to of implementation teams.
- Know how to select an appropriate implementation process.
- Develop strategies to assess organisational readiness and ensure implementation fidelity.
- Understand organisational change mechanisms and human behaviour elements to ensure your success.
Leave us your details so we can tell you when we will be running a workshop near you. We will never give your details to anyone and we promise not to send you endless information!
All our workshops include
To examine our performance (impact), and to provide feedback regarding the value of the workshop to the individual and their organisation.
During the workshop participants will work on relevant elements for their own projects. Participants will leave with ideas and a plan of next steps to be undertaken.
Handouts, activity sheets and information. Participants will have a valuable resource to refer back to as they implement their new knowledge.
All workshops include a follow-up coaching session with each participant to cover any questions and concerns and to facilitate the implementation process.
Participants will use action items developed during the workshop to develop a purposeful and strategic plan. We make sure that time out for this workshop is not wasted but instead leveraged.
What people are saying about our workshops
We became inspired to consider how to work with impact, beyond application writing
We went through a mentorship with Tamika, to guide us in working with impact, when supporting researchers in writing funding applications. She has worked with us on all levels, from high-level concepts, to specific applications. The process has been extremely valuable, and we are much better equipped than before, to support the researchers. Additionally, we became inspired to consider how to work with impact, beyond application writing.
The skills taught were transferable
The skills taught were transferable across all facets of career
I loved the way the Tamika and Cathie packaged up the creation and communication of impact
I loved the way the Tamika and Cathie packaged up the creation and communication of impact into a neat pathway that I can remember and refer back to
I recommend this training!
Every researcher will benefit from learning about research impact to improve their research outcomes and articulate the usefulness of the research. I recommend this training!
Useful workshop for RI planning
Our participants has been provided with a great foundation of what Research Impact is
Our participants has been provided with a great foundation of what Research Impact is and some practical steps that they can use to start to start to think about the impact pathways of their own research
Tamika is an excellent facilitator
Tamika is an excellent facilitator; really great, practical advice and processes, and really understands how research works and what funders and external audiences look for. Very much worthwhile – one of the best sessions I’ve done
This workshop provides a great session
This workshop provides a great session in learning the research impact and how to design and make it happen
I learnt so much from participating in the workshop
Tamika was great! It was a very engaging workshop and almost everything was new or relevant to the my field of research. I learnt so much from participating in the workshop. Thank you!
The information provided was timely and highly accessible
The information provided was timely and highly accessible. Communicating impact is hard and the training provided will enable me to do this better.
Very well designed and well prepared workshop for ECRs.
As a phd student, I feel like the workshop was a timely guideline for me in translating research to a scientific community for upcoming days. Very well designed and well prepared workshop for ECRs.
