The Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth (ARACY) and the Parenting Research Centre wish to advise that these organisations have reached a joint decision to cease hosting the 2016 Australian Implementation Conference (AIC).
Having co-‐hosted two highly successful AIC events (2012 and 2014), both organisations are in agreement that they can no longer commit the significant resources required to deliver this conference.
It is now time to let Australasia’s growing implementation community identify and pursue its next major knowledge sharing initiatives. ARACY and the Parenting Research Centre will support any such activities, albeit as participants rather than co-‐ hosts.
Both organisations are extremely proud of the leadership role AIC has played in raising the profile of implementation science and increasing collaboration in its practice.
The many volunteers, partners, suppliers and staff who delivered the highly successful 2012 and 2014 Australian Implementation Conferences are thanked for their efforts.
ARACY and the Parenting Research Centre look forward to pursuing their respective endeavors in improving outcomes for children and their families by supporting the translation of research into practice.
