“Implementation Science” is an increasingly hot topic for those who are interested in understanding what it takes to close the gap between what we know from clinical evidence, and what we are actually doing to improve health and care for populations and patients.
To contribute to this discussion, the Health Systems Global Working Group on Quality will host a workshop on evaluation designs for quality improvement practice and research. The workshop will draw on the experience of Health Systems Global members and focus on current frameworks and practical challenges for evaluation in resource-limited settings, drawing from a growing body of theoretical and practical knowledge in this area. The objectives will be to increase the understanding of the prevailing evaluation frameworks and their application to quality improvement work in low and middle-income country settings. Lessons from these settings are expected to be applicable to all resource settings.
