About this lecture: Implementation research investigates why interventions found to be effective in clinical trials often fail to be successfully translated into the care that patients receive. This talk will discuss what ‘implementation’ means, drawing on theoretical frameworks that can be used to investigate this translational gap. Findings will be presented from research investigating Early Supported Discharge, a home-based rehabilitation intervention, delivered by a stroke specialist multidisciplinary team. The aim will be to show how implementation research can identify ways to facilitate evidence based practice and ensure research findings actually improve the care that patients receive.
