Workshop on Beyond Evidence-Based Practice: Introduction to Implementation Science

Interventions and evidence-based practices that are poorly implemented – or not implemented at all – do not produce expected health benefits. Even when effectively implemented, interventions and practice changes still might not produce expected health benefits if effectiveness is lost during implementation, or if the intervention or practice was never effective in the first place.

This introductory workshop will provide an insight into what implementation science is and briefly introduce a few frameworks commonly used in the field. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

• Define implementation science.
• Decide and justify whether a health care intervention has sufficient evidence to be translated/disseminated into practice, policy, or public health.
• Identify strategies and activities for engaging key stakeholders in the translation/dissemination of your evidence.
• Define key steps involved in designing effective implementation strategies.

This workshop is organised by the Centre for Epidemiology and Evidence-Based Practice (CEBP) formerly known as Julius Centre University of Malaya (JCUM), Department of Social and Preventive Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya.
