Innovative Methods for Implementation Science: Context and Measurement


Quality gaps and disparities exist in the use of evidence-based practices in clinical care across settings and populations. Research to inform clinical care often focuses on the effectiveness of treatments and interventions, while ignoring information is needed to understand why interventions work in some settings and under specific conditions but not others. This session will focus on the state of the science specifically related to the measurement of context and innovative measurement methodologies for implementation science research.

Participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the role of context in translating knowledge to practice
  • Describe two measurement issues in implementation science
  • Reflect on lessons learned and how those lessons will be applied in their practice setting

Target Audience

This event is specifically designed for researchers, practitioners, and students working in the field of knowledge utilization/translation, as well as participants across the health care industry, including physicians, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, dentists, and hospital administrators.
