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.

Thank you, I can highly recommend this course
Thank you, I can highly recommend this course, it provides an excellent roadmap, with practical and constructive advice
This research impact workshop is enlightening, transformative and practical
This research impact workshop is enlightening, transformative and practical for planning and writing a highly competitive and stringent grant application. It has helped me think about my work from multiple perspectives and bring, what seemed like disparate parts, together to identify that my early career research has impact on the broader world.
It is amazing to see someone present so clearly on how to address applications for NHMRC
It is amazing to see someone present so clearly on how to address applications for NHMRC – she explained the rationale for each section so nicely and will assist many in writing better quality applications.
Information will make a difference
Information will make a difference to my applications and other areas of work
The speaker was fantastic!
I’ve never been given any training in NHMRC grant applications, so this information was all new to me and very valuable. The speaker was fantastic!
Dr. Tamika Heiden’s presentation was superb
Dr. Tamika Heiden’s presentation was superb. It was such a pleasure to know what NHMRC looks for in grant applications. Moreover, she gave useful personalized tips that helped demystify the writing of impact statements.
It provides me with a big picture
It provides me with a big picture of how I should think about writing a grant application.
The murky and fuzzy terminology of research impact is now clear to me
The murky and fuzzy terminology of research impact is now clear to me and it is also crystal clear the steps I need to take to try and increase the impact of my research.
The workshop gives excellent points

Excellent content and information
Great delivery, excellent content and information, engaging workshop
It was an inspiring workshop with practical examples
It was an inspiring workshop with practical examples. It made me to rethink about not only how I can create impact cases from current studies, but also how to design new research studies.
Expert in Impact Research
“Tamika is definitely the expert in Impact Research!”
Brilliant workshop, contents were well organised and easy to understand. Great course materials, with a good amount of activities to help put knowledge to practice
Very informative and inspirational session
The training itself helped me to understand about what impact is, how to plan for it and the different ways of capturing the impact data
I have just had my 1:1 consult with Tamika and wanted to say thank you for facilitating both the training webinar and the consultations with Research Impact Academy and Tamika. I will be finishing my PhD in the next 6-8 months and whilst at first I was hesitant to sign up, feeling like I didn’t have enough to consider or plan for, I’m so glad I did. The training itself helped me to understand about what impact is, how to plan for it and the different ways of capturing the impact data. The consultation with Tamika was brilliant- Tamika offered me so many insights about what to do with my PhD work- I had some draft ideas but now it will be more refined, and I will be able to plan for capturing the evidence of impact moving forward.
