Tools are critical for advancing the science and improving the practice of implementation. Below are select articles that provide a broad understanding of implementation science and an orientation video. We also provide information about available tools and resources to help advance implementation science: Research Tools, Practice Tools, and Research–Practice Partnerships.
Available Tools and 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 models; measures; strategies; research methods and study designs; and additional resources (i.e., websites and books).
These tools are intended to help health practitioners and policymakers to 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 IS team is actively involved in several partnerships to facilitate and encourage collaboration between research and practice communities.
