Call for Abstracts
Are you keen to learn more about the emerging developments in implementation science and practice, and to improve outcomes for both individuals and society?
The Australasian Implementation Conference 2016 (AIC 2016), hosted by the Centre for Evidence and Implementation (Save the Children Australia) and The University of Melbourne, provides a unique and important opportunity for those in the fields of health, education, social care, and international development to discuss latest advances in implementation science and practice.
Delegates will gain up-to-date knowledge in applying implementation science to real-world settings in order to improve outcomes for individuals and society.
With the theme Driving Effective Implementation, the AIC 2016 will showcase advancements in science, practice and policy to facilitate and support:
- individual and organisational change,
- system transformation, and
- the active implementation of effective interventions in a broad range of human services.
How will the AIC 2016 benefit your work?
In health, education, social work and international development, implementation of research-based evidence is essential for agencies and systems to improve the quality of program and service initiatives.
Implementation science and research investigates and addresses obstacles to effective implementation. It also supports implementers in effectively putting into practice an activity, an innovation, a program, a practice or a policy. Active implementation support is about applying research and other knowledge in a tailored, ‘hands-on’ way to help policymakers and services deliver on their aspirations.
What will be discussed?
At the AIC 2016, we will discuss critical factors in driving effective implementation. This includes the vital role of practitioners, teams, managers, organisational leaders and policymakers; as well as the importance of sustainable capacity building across different layers of the service system.
There will also be a specific focus on implementation in international development, which will examine and highlight the crucial role of good implementation science and practice in low and middle-income countries.
