Description
Summary:"Implementation science seeks to close the research-to-practice gap by identifying the barriers that impede the adoption, implementation, sustainability, and scale-up of evidence-based health interventions, and by identifying the best methods for overcoming those barriers. As implementation scientists, our aspiration for the field is to generate useful and usable scientific knowledge to improve the practice of implementation. Put differently, we envision the field of implementation science producing the knowledge and tools to support the evidence-based implementation of evidence-based health interventions. The rapid growth of implementation science as a research enterprise, however, has given rise to concerns that we and other implementation scientists share that implementation science itself will replicate the research-to-practice gap that the field was intended to address. This book represents the first systematic attempt by leading implementation researchers to "translate" implementation science for implementation practitioners by making accessible and practical the wealth of scientific knowledge and associated tools that implementation science has produced"--
