Supporting Implementation and Improving Evaluation, NIHR Applied Resource Collaboration

Nov 15,2020 | Consortium_staff Resource of the Month

Implementation and improvement science researchers at ARC South London have developed an interactive resource to support the rapid implementation and evaluation of health and social care innovations, interventions, and new services during, and after, the Covid-19 pandemic.

The new resource is based on lessons from implementation and improvement sciences. It aims to provide an accessible guide and support for health and social care staff and managers through key lessons in implementing change, from understanding early adoption to supporting ongoing implementation, to keeping things going or deciding to stop. To facilitate continuous learning and improvement, the resource encourages a reflective approach to both implementation and evaluation.

The development of the resource was led by Dr Louise Hull, deputy lead of the implementation research theme at the NIHR ARC South London, and was a collaborative effort, including researchers from King’s Improvement Science, funded by King’s Health Partners, and the Health Innovation Network.
