Implementation science is the study of systematic methods to promote the uptake of evidence-based practices into routine practice, with the ultimate goal of improving the quality and effectiveness of health services. At Northwestern, faculty from CHSOR and the newly established Center for Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Science are uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between evidence and practice. Our growing cohort of multi-disciplinary experts is using real-world data to understand practice gaps and barriers as well as facilitators to implementation. Specifically, the cohort is leading large hybrid effectiveness-implementation trials and leveraging cutting-edge methods such as human-centered design, implementation mapping and clinical ethnography to improve intervention fit and increase the rate of scale-up.
