About

People don't benefit from programs or services that they don't experience. Implementation science seeks to promote the use of evidence-based programs and services in clinical and community settings so that people experience the benefits that these programs and services produce in research studies.

Adoption, implementation, sustainment of innovations and evidence-based practices; management, operation, and sustainability of inter-organizational relationships; total quality management; patient safety
