Event description


The Center for Translation Research and Implementation Science (CTRIS) Global Health Implementation Research Webinar Series, is part of CTRIS’ efforts to help expand global research and training collaborations, and make readily accessible to investigators and practitioners in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), emergent knowledge and model studies relevant to the conduct of dissemination and implementation research in global NCDs. The webinars are intended for early-stage investigators, established researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and anyone interested in conducting implementation research in low-resource settings.

About the Presentation

The gap between what is known and what is practiced results in health service users not benefitting from advances in healthcare, and in unnecessary costs. A supportive context is considered a key element for successful implementation of evidence-based practices (EBP). In order to move from ‘what works’ to ‘what works where and why’, there is a need to generate evidence of what facilitates successful implementation, especially in low-resource settings. The webinar will discuss tools aimed at assessing healthcare context, developed for, and validated in LMICs; and systematic assessments conducted of the healthcare delivery context in LMICs to gain insights into factors influencing the application and uptake of EBPs prior to and during implementation of health interventions.
