At the #EIE2023, Implementation – the translation, uptake and integration of research findings within the daily routines of human services – takes centre stage. Attendees will learn about latest, cutting-edge implementation science and practice; participate in inspiring and surprising discussions with international colleagues; expand your professional network; and be inspired by the diversity of this exciting discipline.
EU funded Joint Action JADECARE, aiming to assist Member States in undertaking health system reforms by supporting the transfer of four “original Good Practices” (primary care centers, hospital and community setting) to 21 “Next Adopters (NAs)” of 14 different EU countries will be hosting a workshop at EIE2023 demonstrating its implementation strategy. The three step implementation strategy has been developed to enable the transfer process that includes a series of techniques, concrete procedures, guidance and recommendations. The three main phases are: Pre-implementation (planning and preparation), Implementation (roll-out and operation, based on PDSA cycles) and Post-implementation (impact assessment and learning). The strategy provides a blueprint for adoption, implementation, monitoring, reporting and sustainability of successful interventions into new contexts. Furthermore, the successful use case of JADECARE sets the base to implement digitally enabled integrated care at large scale, which translates into introducing innovations in health systems that result in better health care. Following the presentation of its strategy, JADECARE representatives will discuss two key questions with the audience: 1) How relevant is it to focus on the prior preparation of the local environment and to consider the key contextual determinants of the implementers to modulate the success of the implementation process? 2) How can a community of learning stakeholders be promoted that explores ways to develop, collect and exchange knowledge and performs concrete action for boosting and leveraging the sustainability of the implemented practices?
EIC overarching goals, also pursued at EIC2023 are to:
Be the “go to” network for knowledge and resources on European implementation science and practice.
Connect individuals, groups, networks, and organisations, reducing the implementation science – practice gap.
Actively promote equity in implementation science and practice.
Collaborate with organisations, networks, and groups outside the EIC to push forward implementation science and practice.
The European Implementation Collaborative (EIC) aims to build a connected European community of practitioners, researchers, and policy makers with contemporary implementation skills and expertise, improving the quality of life for all people.
