Building on enthusiasm from the 2019 Implementation Science Institute, the Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR) will offer a 2020 Institute! If you attended the 2019 Institute, return to extend your knowledge and build our community. If you missed the 2019 Institute, join us in 2020!
Implementation science provides opportunities for researchers and clinical leaders to develop strategies to adopt and integrate evidence-based interventions to improve the quality and effectiveness of rehabilitation care.
Researchers, learn new frameworks and research designs to apply in this emerging field. Clinicians, learn how to use implementation science principles to increase uptake of evidence-based practices into your organization.
The institute will be held at the Hotel Providence in Providence, RI, April 15 & 16, 2020. Learn more and register at http://www.bu.edu/cohstar/training/2020institute/.
CoHSTAR held the 4th Implementation Science Research Institute in Providence, Rhode Island, on May 1-2, 2019. The theme for the institute, “A New Frontier for Rehabilitation,” reflected the advancements made in the field since the first event held in 2016.
The Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy (AOPT) cosponsored the event. AOPT also offered a workshop immediately following the institute in partnership with CoHSTAR focused on clinical practice guideline (CPG) implementation projects. AOPT sponsored the creation of CPGs to describe evidence-based physical therapy practice, classify and define common musculoskeletal conditions, and identify interventions supported by best current evidence to address impairment, functional limitation, and disability.
The keynote address was delivered by Amy Kilbourne, PhD, MPH, the Director of the Quality Enhancement Research Initiative for the Veterans Affairs and Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan.
