The Implementation Science team engages with academic partners, clinical champions, patient partners, and others to conduct rapid-cycle research reviews (and implementation science projects) to help inform key policies and practice improvement initiatives with a broad goal of improving health outcomes and efficiencies.
These reviews include synthesis of best-practice evidence and jurisdictional scans—some include analysis of local data and interviews with key informants. The reviews are conducted in short timeframes using various methods to understand and contextualize a priority topic that is not easily found in existing literature. Relevant information is often found in grey literature, locally published policy, and other relevant documents (e.g. internal and unpublished documents), and combined with locally-relevant data including key informant interviews with policy and decision makers, frontline staff, patients and others to address policy or priority issues more comprehensively.
