Research & Practice Tools

Tools are critical for advancing the science and improving the practice of implementation. Below, we provide information about available tools and resources to help advance implementation science, including Research Tools, Practice Tools, and Research-Practice Partnerships. The Implementation Science team has been involved in the development and maintenance of many of these resources.

These tools are intended to primarily help researchers better understand, plan for and conduct rigorous dissemination and implementation studies, organized by theories, frameworks, and modelsmeasuresstrategies; research methods and study designs; and additional resources (i.e., websites and books). We will continue to update these sections as additional tools become available.

The tools are intended to primarily help health practitioners and policymakers better understand, plan for and implement evidence-based practices, programs, and interventions into routine health care and public health settings.

Research-practice partnerships are essential for integrating evidence-based practices, programs and interventions into health care and public health settings. The Implementation Science (IS) team is actively involved in several partnerships to facilitate and encourage collaboration between research and practice communities.
