Implementation Science 101: An Introductory workshop for researchers, clinicians, policy makers, and community members

Implementation science provides a multidisciplinary framework and set of rigorous methods to promote the integration of scientific evidence into healthcare practice, policy, and research. Implementation science seeks to improve population health by increasing system level adoption, wide-scale delivery, and sustainment of evidence-based interventions in communities and organizations. Beginning with this introductory presentation and continuing through this coming year, we will present a series of workshops to help investigators, clinicians, public health professionals, community members and other stakeholders understand how implementation science can advance their own healthcare practice, policy, or research.

In this first introductory workshop, we will present and illustrate some of the basic terminology, approaches, and methods used in implementation science. Illustrations focus primarily on evidence-based HIV preventive interventions, but because implementation science focuses on producing generalizable knowledge, the material is applicable to all areas of healthcare.


Audience: Researchers, Clinicians, Policy Makers, Public Health Professionals, Community Members who are interested in using scientific evidence to improve any aspect of health care. We especially welcome individuals who are interested in developing a career in HIV/AIDS.

Learning Objectives: 1) To understand the role of implementation science in closing the gap between evidence and practice to improve client health; 2) To become familiar with implementation science terminology, frameworks, methods, and applications; 3) To understand how implementation science can enhance and optimize their current approaches to strengthening HIV prevention and treatment programs.

CE credits: 1.5 hours

Workshop Co-sponsors: Third Coast Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), Center for Prevention Implementation Methodology (Ce-PIM), Chicago Center for HIV Elimination (CCHE), Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (NUCATS), Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM)
