Implementation Science Community of Practice

We are building an online Community of Practice for all those interested in Implementation Science. This includes clinicians, researchers and students across the Partnership. The online community will provide practical networking and capacity development opportunities for its members, including events, resources and educational programs.

What is Implementation Science?

Implementation Science is the scientific study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of research findings and other evidence-based practices (interventions, programs, innovations) into routine practice and improve the quality and effectiveness of health services and care.

The Implementation Science program at Sydney Health Partners engages with stakeholders across the Partnership through our Clinical Partners Roundtable, and the Academic Network. Together, these two groups work to address the concerns of key groups, both academic and clinical, regarding Implementation Science training and expertise through SHP.

Clinical Partners Roundtable

  • Identifies evidence-practice gaps, significant opportunities for rapid translation and LHD partner priorities, helping us identify where the SHP Implementation Science program can add most value
  • Collaborates with the Academic Network to provide timely advice about training and education needs in Implementation Science and, where feasible, partner and facilitate the emerging research program
  • Acts as a key point of communication for engaging health professionals in a Community of Practice in Implementation Science
  • Provides health services and clinical expertise for the Implementation Science program more broadly

Academic Network

  • Identifies significant opportunities for rapid translation and sets priorities for the Implementation Science program - particularly where SHP can value-add to priorities about implementation across health services
  • Provides timely advice about training and education needs in Implementation Science at postgraduate levels and with specific needs in mind (e.g. micro-credentialing)
  • Acts as a key point of communication for engaging health professionals in a Community of Practice in Implementation Science
  • Provides health services and clinical expertise for the Implementation Science program more broadly.
