Typical Questions

Implementation science deals with the following questions:

  • What are the most effective strategies and practices to incorporate new discoveries and evidence-based practice into care delivery?
  • How do contextual factors (such as the political environment or the internal and external context of a health care organization) influence the success - or failure - of implementing a new discovery or an evidence-based practice?
  • How can these contextual factors be modified to increase chances of success?
  • How can evidence-based practices and implementation strategies be tailored to improve implementation in a given context?
  • What are the most effective strategies to de-implement practices that are no longer effective or were never effective in the first place.
