Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health

Health care implementation science has contributed valuable theory and empirical evidence and has advanced efforts to identify and address important conceptual and methodological challenges in implementation research. Implementation research in health care has also helped stimulate increased policy and practice interest and has facilitated the field's continuing transformation into a coherent, integrated body of research encompassing multiple disciplines and domains. This chapter briefly reviews key stages in the evolution and development of implementation science in health care, describes the range of settings and effective practices of interest to implementation researchers—and the implementation strategies and programs developed to facilitate improvements in health care processes and outcomes—and examines key challenges and future directions in the field. A case study of an integrated program of implementation research in schizophrenia illustrates many of the ideas discussed in the chapter.
