McGill Global Health Programs and the Université de Montréal Chair REALISME (Interventional applied research in global health and equity) held on last April 20th, 2017, a Global Health Workshop, Methods For Implementation Science in Global Health, at McGill University. The purpose was to try to understand why do interventions work in one “real world” setting and not another.
This presentation was designed by Valéry Ridde for a Symposium organised by the Global Health Program at the San Diego State University’s Graduate School of Public Health. The Symposium was held on April 14, 2017 at San Diego State University. After coming back on a few definitions about implementation science, the presentation focuses on the methodological approach to implementation and on its outcomes. The presentation ends with 11 points which everyone should know about implementation.
McGill Global Health Programs is proud to partner with the Université de Montréal Chair REALISME (Interventional applied research in global health and equity).
Implementation science is not implementation research (use of evidence for intervention); it’s about mobilizing theories, concepts and methods to better understand what, why, and how interventions work in a “real world” setting (Ridde V. BMJ Glob Health 2016;1:e000115). But it is more easily stated than accomplished!
