Research Implementation

Fall 2018- Spring 2019 Research Implementation Workshop Series

This workshop series focuses on the major implementation science approaches as well as theories,  models and frameworks currently available. Participants  discuss their own research projects and receive feedback on the best  research implementation approaches to be used.

Series Leaders: Ekaterina (Katia) Noyes PhD, MPH and Ranjit Singh, MB, BChir, MBA




Overview of Implementation Science Frameworks


Applying Implementation Science Frameworks to Our Research


Implementation Strategies


Implementation Study Design and How to Get Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Studies Funded


Developing and Critically Apprising Implementation Science Grant Proposal

Fall 2019- Research Implementation Journal Club

The objective of the journal club series  is to help attendees gain a deeper understanding of Implementation Science (IS) theories, models, and frameworks, and  highlight their strengths and weaknesses by critically reviewing research papers in which they are applied.                                                                                                                        The attendees will also learn how to enhance their own research by applying Research Implementation theories, models, and frameworks appropriately. 

Each session features small group and big group discussion  comparing and contrasting  two research articles each.
