Session 2: Using & Discussing Implementation Science Models

This session was held 12/6/17 and was the second in a 7-part series of skills building workshops hosted by the Evans Center for Implementation and Improvement Sciences. The series aims to provide an overview of the implementation and improvement sciences fields while offering skills building exercises to help you design a high-quality research study.

Session 2 learning objectives were:

• Gain introductory knowledge of implementation and improvement science specific theoretical/conceptual models.
• Discuss the importance of linking study questions, process and outcome measures to a conceptual model.
• Discuss the importance identifying how study findings can build upon existing theory and contribute to developing the field.
