Thursday 4 August, 2016 – 12.30 to 1.30
CRFR, 23 Buccleuch Place, Edinburgh

Despite the growing emphasis on the use of evidence-based practices to improve outcomes, the use of research evidence on the frontline of child and family services has been limited. Even when public agencies make the investment in evidence-based practices, sustaining the potential of these approaches over the long-term continues to be a challenge across the globe.

Case study research has demonstrated that a dual focus on the co-creation of research evidence and systems improvement strategies holds promise for the integration of research evidence into services. Valuing implementation as a collaborative act results in knowledge and evidence that is more implementable, an infrastructure that brings evidence and implementation closer together, increased relevance and impact of implementation activities, and enhanced capacity and capability of implementation.

This seminar will be given by Allison Metz, Director of the National Implementation Research Network, Senior Scientist, Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA.
