The presentation will cover approaches for understanding context, engaging stakeholders, co-design, problem-solution fit, and pragmatic evaluation. The presentation will also discuss design considerations for scalability and sustainability including resourcing and adaptability. People with an interest in service re-design and its evaluation are encouraged to attend.

The Implementation Science Academy is presenting webinars each month throughout 2024. The Implementation Science webinar series aims to support researchers, clinicians and consumers to develop an understanding of how to weave implementation science into your research. Each webinar will focus on a topic relevant to implementation science and include a practical case study from an academic, consumer or clinician researcher.
