Understanding how to put effective health care into practice is a crucial link in the chain to improve the population’s health. Implementation Science provides this understanding and draws on a range of research methods, including: mixed-methods, behaviour change, operational research, qualitative research and quality improvement.
Within PenARC, our implementation scientists work across all of our research themes and within three key areas:
Research – developing new projects, supporting emerging projects and obtaining grant funding
Improvement – working collaboratively with partner organisations to support the implementation of evidence-informed change
Capacity-building – increasing the awareness and understanding of implementation science across the South West.
To further improve the contribution implementation science makes toward achieving PenARC's strategic goals, we are focused on:
Supporting implementation research in existing and future PenARC projects;
Working collaboratively with external partners with related goals, such as the South West Academic Health Science Network (SWAHSN), other institutions and other ARC's;
Expanding capacity-building through initiatives such as postgraduate education, Continuing Professional Development, and our ‘Learning, Knowing, Doing’ seminar series.
