Be a Champion! Practical Strategies to Improve Your Practice Using Implementation Science
This presentation will feature real world implementation examples from a seasoned interprofessional team working in a high needs primary care clinic. In Part 1 of our session (approx. 30 minutes), we will define implementation science and familiarize the audience with the EPIS framework (Aarons, Hurlburt, & Horwitz, 2011). We will also describe champion teams as a practical and efficient way to conduct implementation science on the clinic level. Part 2 of our session (approx. 30 min) will be dedicated to translating concepts learned in Part 1 to audience members' personal work via individual worksheets, small and large group discussion, and a question and answer period. Additionally, participants will gain access to an electronic toolkit with relevant articles, worksheets and materials to and build on ideas generated during the session and support their project implementation after the conference.
