On this page you can find guides and key publications that relate to implementation science in the context of non-communicable disease programmes for low- and middle-income settings and vulnerable populations in high-income setting. Where available, we have noted resources available in multiple languages.
“We do not guarantee that everything will go as we had previously planned, for obvious reasons. But using theoretical implementation models helps the professional to explain why a particular innovation/implementation went as planned or why it did not take place in accordance with it.”
Introduction to Implementation Science for Health Professionals
Bomfim, R. A., De-Carli, A. D., Cascaes, A. M., Buccini, G., Probst, L. F., & Frazão, P. (2021). Introdução à ciência de implementação para profissionais da saúde.
This book aims to help health professionals to better implement established scientific evidence for the benefit of population health. It is estimated that the average time for scientific evidence to be routinely used in clinical practice is around 15 years. One of the goals of this work is to shorten this time.
