Research theme: Innovation and implementation science
Our innovation and implementation science research aims to evaluate new models of care, digital technologies and approaches to improving health system performance. We want to improve implementation in diverse settings, provide frameworks and tools for practitioners and reduce the delay between innovation and putting it into everyday practice. This work supports research across all of our theme areas.
Through this theme the ARC North Thames aims to make a major contribution to understanding, planning and evaluating implementation processes through which evidence and innovations are translated into practice. We will build mutual understanding between providers, users and researchers, and develop methodological and explanatory models that are framed around real-world conditions.
Our team and approach will apply usable knowledge about the dynamics of adoption, implementation and sustainability to a range of different contexts. We have assembled a community of practice who possess internationally acknowledged methodological, conceptual and clinical expertise. and who can rise to the challenges of socio-technical transformation and system restructuring in health and care over the next five years.
