Organization: Master of Science in Health Policy Research, Perelman School of Medicine, The University of Pennsylvania.
Audience & Focus: Open to Master's students and Research Staff. Implementation science has emerged as a discipline to bridge the research-to-practice gap. Implementation research is the scientific study of methods to improve the adoption, implementation, and sustainment of evidence-based practices in health services settings.
The purpose of the Implementation Science Institute is to provide participants with the tools to design and study rigorous implementation science research. The Institute will give an introduction to the foundations of implementation science (i.e., terminology, conceptual models and frameworks, study design). Students will also receive an overview of advanced topics including implementation strategies and sustainability. The course directors will cover tips for grant writing, skill development and time will be spent writing specific aims for Implementation Science grants.
