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

  • 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

  • Very Useful

    I really enjoyed your workshop today about knowledge translation and research impact. I found it very useful and will certainly be implementing some ideas.

    Leanne Morrison, Lecturer, RMIT University

  • Great Ambassadress

    With a recent introduction to the concepts of KT I was excited and hopeful to be referred to Knowledge Translation Australia. I found Tamika to be a great ambassadress for the place and processes of KT in research and practice. I look forward to contributing to the ‘closing of the loop’

    Krista Watts, Peter Doherty

  • Thank you!

    Your ability to understand my project and apply KT principles helped me to unlock, then articulate the best way to plan and describe the successful translation and implementation of my proposed project. I will hopefully contact you with news of my successful Fellowship and definitely look to engaging your talents to increase my skills and then improve outcomes for trauma patients across New South Wales!

  • 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!

  • A Great Workshop

    A great workshop. I learned a lot about myself (strengths and weaknesses) and strategies to navigate in an increasingly competitive research context.

    Workshop Attendee, Griffith University

  • I Truly Enjoyed this Workshop

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

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

  • Interesting and Enlightening

    As an experienced teacher and a novice researcher I found the Mastering Knowledge Translation Workshop to be both interesting and enlightening. There is a vast amount of literature on the value of research in education and equally as much literature on the value of good teaching practice. The conceptual framework presented in the workshop illustrated for me a way that research could be communicated more effectively to inform and change practice.
