Implementation Science from Research to Practice

This presentation focuses on the emerging field of implementation evaluation and research through background on implementation science and the sharing of case examples of implementation practice and research across patient populations and settings. These case studies, relying on implementation frameworks, include a statewide dissemination of an African American church based health promotion program and a decision process for the integration of digital health into pediatric practice. In addition, Dr. Fleisher will highlights some of the current resources and funding opportunities in implementation science.
