Implementation and Improvement Science, Evaluation and Practice

We develop, study and evaluate methods to promote the adoption and integration of evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies into routine health care and public health settings. We also investigate strategies to improve healthcare, systems, safety, and policy and evaluate current practices to determine their efficacy.
