Thursday 3 May 2018, 10:00 — 13:00
Jubilee Campus, University of Nottingham

Date: 3 May 2018

Time: 10am – 1pm

Location: B37, Dearing Building, Jubilee Campus, University of Nottingham

Session Lead: Prof Justin Waring, CLAHRC EM IEI Theme / University of Nottingham Business School

Uptake of new evidence into routine healthcare practice can take as long as 17 years. During this time, patients may experience care that is arguably sub-optimal. This session will introduce the concept of Implementation Science, which has evolved over the last decade to better understand how and why evidence is (or is not) taken up in routine service organisation and delivery. 

The session will introduce some of the key ideas and approaches to thinking about the implementation process, such as Damschorder’s Consolidated Framework, and will outline 'tried and tested' examples of how the 'gap’ between research and practice can be bridged through forms of 'knowledge brokering' and developing 'communities of practice’. Learning is drawn from the experiences of researchers working with NIHR CLAHRC East Midlands.
