Implementation science aims to understand how to get evidence into clinical practice, but even when we do, research translation achievements in one setting are notoriously difficult to replicate in another. Realist evaluation provides a useful framework to understand how and why interventions work under different circumstances. Presenter Dr Mitchell Sarkies is a Senior Lecturer, Sydney Horizon Fellow and NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow at the Sydney School of Health Sciences and co-leads the Sydney Health Partners Implementation Science Academy.
His presentation will introduce the use of realist evaluation in implementation research and provide examples from large scale value-based health care initiatives in NSW.
The Implementation Science Academy is presenting webinars each month throughout 2024. The Implementation Science webinar series aims to support researchers, clinicians and consumers to develop an understanding of how to weave implementation science into your research. Each webinar will focus on a topic relevant to implementation science and include a practical case study from an academic, consumer or clinician researcher.
