REPORT: Results from a survey of the Ensuring Value in Research (EViR) Funders’ Forum

A significant gap persists between evidence from research and its use in practice. Research funders, important actors in the health research system, can help reduce this gap by initiating dissemination and implementation (D&I) activities. The specific types of D&I activities funders currently lead have not been explored thoroughly. The Ensuring Value in Research (EViR) Funders’ Forum—an international collaboration of health-related research funders— was established in 2017 to address research waste issues and increase the value of research. The Forum surveyed funders to learn about their D&I practices and challenges.

BOOK: Practical Implementation Science - Moving Evidence into Action

Practical Implementation Science is designed for graduate health professional and advanced undergraduate students who want to master the steps of using implementation science to improve public health. Engaging and accessible, this textbook demonstrates how to implement evidence-based practices effectively through use of relevant theories, frameworks, models, tools, and research findings. Additional real-world case studies across public health, global health, and health policy provide essential context to the major issues facing implementation domestically and globally with consideration of communities in low-to-middle-income countries (LMIC).

REPORT: Implementation Networks Report

The Netherlands Organization for Health Research and Innovation (ZonMw) developed a report to understand the foundations of Implementation Networks within Europe with regards to their general structure and governance, members, finances and determinants of practice. The understanding of these aspects will help govern and maintain such networks as well as helping other countries and regions to set up their own network. Providing such information can form a basis for conversations with national governmental and funding bodies about the establishment and sustainment of these types of networks.
