The Implementation Science Masterclass 2021 is for health and social care professionals, researchers, patients and service users who want to make sure health and social care services routinely offer treatment and care that is based on the most recent research evidence.
Organised by NIHR ARC South London, and now in its seventh year, the three-day Masterclass will be held online over three consecutive Thursdays: 17, 24 June and 1 July 2021.
About the Implementation Science Masterclass
The Implementation Science Masterclass will include lectures from world-renowned experts in the field of implementation science, small group workshops facilitated by leading researchers, and advice clinics to help you work more effectively on your own implementation projects. It will include an advanced stream for those with more experience in the field or who have previously attended the course.
Lectures will include:
Introductions to the field of implementation science, including its history and background
Advanced lectures on theories, models and frameworks
Hybrid designs which measure effectiveness and implementation concurrently.
Interactive workshops will include:
How to implement evidence-based practices in the context of differing values from a public health perspective
Implementing learning healthcare systems at scale
Advanced quantitative methods for mechanism analysis in implementation science
How to publish implementation research.
International experts will provide short lectures on the topics above. These lectures will be followed by question and answer sessions and then group workshops, which will be based on the lectures. Please note: the final curriculum is to be confirmed. The course is CPD Accredited.
Confirmed speakers and workshop leaders:
The course is led by international experts in the field of implementation science research including: Professor Nick Sevdalis, director of the Centre for Implementation Science, King's College London and Dr Brian Mittman, senior research scientist at the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research.
Implementation science is the study of methods and strategies to promote the uptake of health and social care interventions that have proven effective into routine practice, with the aim of improving health. Read more.
