Implementation Science Overview

What is Implementation Science

Implementation science is the “application and integration of research evidence into practice and policy.”

Glasgow, Eckstein, and ElZarrad (2013)

Why Is Implementation Research Important?

  • Address the gap between theory and practice particularly in low- and middle- income countries
  • Help identify the reasons of previous failures of implementation
  • Account for the complexities in the systems
  • Support evidence-based policymaking
