The European Implementation Collaborative engages a broad range of individual and organisational stakeholders in the field of implementation. We build links and exchange learning about implementation science and practice within Europe.
This resource, Implementation Science at a Glance, is intended to help practitioners and policy makers gain familiarity with the building blocks of implementation science. This resource also includes several case examples of how cancer control organizations have gone through the process of exploring evidence-based interventions, preparing for their integration into varied practice settings, actively implementing them, and evaluating their impact over time.
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).
