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

  • 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

  • Excellent Workshop

    I attended the knowledge translation roadmap workshop yesterday in preparation for a research fellowship application. This was a fantastic experience – Tamika was very knowledgeable and engaging, the content was relevant and interesting, and I have left the workshop feeling transformed. This will change the way I plan my research and no doubt will lead to better translation of my research. Thank you!

  • Very Useful

    Very useful. Every ECR should attend this workshop to start a research career.

    Workshop Attendee, Griffith University

  • 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.

  • Highly Recommend

    “I would highly recommend Tamika’s Knowledge Translation Workshop. It was great for brainstorming, interactive learning, and problem solving. The creative exercises got everyone relaxed and involved and the take-away handouts are an excellent resource moving forward.”

    Dr Amina Khambalia, Clinical and Population Perinatal Health Research, Kolling Institute, The University of Sydney

  • Inspiring!

    I have achieved one of my goals from my 90 day action plan already as I was motivated to tick one of my boxes off early! (Took 2hrs)
