An international group of speakers and presenters from NHS Education for Scotland, the European Implementation Collaborative, Kingston University, NIRN, the National Center on Early Childhood Development, and more, will offer expertise at this popular event, held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Nov. 17 event, "The Role of Context in Implementation of Evidence-Informed Programs and Practices," will:
- provide a live demonstration of Scotland's digital resource, "Early Intervention Framework for Children and Young People's Mental Health and Mental Wellbeing," designed to support service providers in making fully informed decisions about interventions that are implementable and sustainable for their specific context, and
- discuss integration of racial equity considerations into NIRN’s Hexagon Tool and Discussion Guide.
"The Critical Role of Relationships in Implementation Practice and Evidence Use and New International Practice Guide to Supporting Implementation" on Dec. 4 features an international group of speakers who will:
- discuss new research findings on the role of trusting relationships in supporting evidence use and identify areas for future research in implementation practice, and
- introduce a new international practice guide for supporting implementation developed through a collaboration with the European Implementation Collaborative, Centre for Effective Services, and National Implementation Research Network.
