Implementation Research Online Course
Implementation Research is an introductory online course that covers the theory and methods used in conducting implementation research.
The conduct of real-world clinical research, often referred to as effectiveness or outcomes research, does not then guarantee the successful translation of knowledge into practice. There is a growing awareness that studies on comparative and cost effectiveness, which identify practices that will maximize quality and value, require companion work on implementation research to assure that current evidence is ultimately implemented into routine clinical practice and health policy. This course outlines the field of implementation research - the suite of qualitative, quantitative, and mixed research methods that address the facilitators and barriers to the translation of evidence into practice.
