In today’s social-media-driven world, “trending” does not just signify popularity. It also translates to great interest in topics that matter to you and the community to which you belong.
If feedback from the ASHFoundation’s March 20–22 summit is an indication, “implementation science” is, indeed, trending in communication sciences and disorders.
Held in Carlsbad, Calif., the ASHFoundation Implementation Science Summit launched a transformative program about the science of integrating research into practice. Expert speakers from several disciplines covered topics ranging from conceptual and methodological issues to implementation models and research funding, with interactive group discussion throughout. The audience represented academic faculty, researchers, doctoral students, clinicians, and ASHFoundation and ASHA leadership.
In a 2006 article in the journal Implementation Science, Martin Eccles and Brian Mittman define implementation science as “the scientific study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine practice” to improve the quality and effectiveness of health services. Today’s emphasis in health care and education on accountability and efficiency in the context of quality, combined with a climate of reduced resources, heighten the importance of research on how to implement new innovations into system-wide practice.
The ASHFoundation, committed to a future-focused mission, is at the forefront of engaging stakeholders in this timely topic. Visit www.ashfoundation.org to view the summit presentations.
