Implementation fundamentals

Implementation is important for achieving lasting impact

What is implementation? Implementation is the process of putting to use or integrating new practices within a setting, be it service or practice or policy change.

Implementation focuses on taking interventions that have been found to be effective using methodologically rigorous designs (e.g., randomised controlled trials, quasi-experimental designs, hybrid designs) under real-world conditions, and integrating them into practice settings using deliberate strategies and processes.

With the advent of implementation science, there has been a plethora of models and processes developed and tested that show the necessary factors to consider both in preparing for and in doing your implementation.

This workshop focuses on how to move existing evidence into a practice of policy setting.

Workshop objectives:

  • Learn about the models and frameworks for implementation.
  • Understand the terminology, definitions and processes required for effective implementation.
  • Learn what makes for effective implementation, teams, processes, factors, strategies and evaluation.
  • Understand the mechanisms and how to of implementation teams.
  • Know how to select an appropriate implementation process.
  • Develop strategies to assess organisational readiness and ensure implementation fidelity.
  • Understand organisational change mechanisms and human behaviour elements to ensure your success.

All our workshops include

 Evaluation

This allows us to examine our performance, and to provide feedback regarding the value of the workshop to the individual and their organisation.

Implementation

During the workshop participants will work on relevant elements for their own projects. Participants will leave with ideas and a plan of next steps to be undertaken. In some cases, all implementation may be possible during the workshop period.

Workbook

Participants will have a valuable resource to refer back to as they implement their new knowledge.

Coaching

Access tailored implementation support in a follow-up coaching session. All workshops include a follow-up coaching session with each participant to cover any questions and concerns and to facilitate the implementation process.

Action plan

Participants will use action items developed throughout the workshop to develop their plan for the coming months. The plan is developed in a purposeful and strategic way to help progress learning and make sure that time out for this workshop is not wasted but instead leveraged.

What people are saying about our workshops

  • Thank you Tamika!

    Thanks Tamika. I truly enjoyed this workshop and have made some relevant decisions for our research projects based on the content and ideas presented.

    Ana Mantilla, Research Associate and Project Manager, Learning Sciences Institute Australia. Australian Catholic University

  • A Most Valuable Half-day in the Two-Year Research Journey Thank you, Tamika.

    It was a pleasure attending this workshop. A conscious effort to maximise the use and application of research arguably involves stakeholders. Understanding the KT process model has helped me demystify any complexities I had and provided me with a plan to heighten the impact of work I have immersed myself in.

    Antoine Musu, Doctoral Scholar & Educator, Business School, University of Western Australia

  • Worth my Time

    It was a great workshop. I learned a lot. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your knowledge. I loved having a set of rules to follow.

    Molly Driediger, PhD Postdoctoral Scholar, Child Health & Physical Activity Laboratory, Western University, Occupational Therapy

  • Thank you

    Effective and interactive presenter who made it enjoyable for beginners.

    Workshop Attendee, Deakin University VIC

  • Knowledge Translation in its True Form

    If I had done this KT Australia workshop with Tamika before embarking on my project, I would have been more successful in actually conducting knowledge translation in its true form – from dissemination to implementation in practice.”

    Loretta Piccenna, National Trauma Research Institute & Monash University

  • Worthwhile

    Updated and added to my existing knowledge

    Workshop Attendee, Massey University

  • We All Came Away with Greater Understanding

    Tamika delivered the two-day SKTT course to a group of 25 researchers at Melbourne Children’s. We all came away with greater understanding and ability to apply KT theories, frameworks and approaches in our work. Tamika is an engaging and knowledgeable presenter whose training will help individuals and organisations realise their research impact goals.

    Ken Knight, Senior Project Lead, Knowledge Translation, Centre for Community Child Health, Policy, Equity & Translation Research Group

  • I have taken away a host of new avenues to explore when planning research projects

    Tamika is so well-informed on knowledge translation and brings so much energy to a workshop. She is able to very constructively engage across the diversity of research specialities and roles of workshop participants to meet people where they are and help them strategise about their own particular projects. I have taken away a host of new avenues to explore when planning research projects.
