Implementation Science One-day Mini-Course
Course participants are also invited to participate in a one-day Implementation Science Mini-Course on Friday, August 3, 2018.

Implementation science aims to bridge the “know-do” gap by using rigorous methods to study, test, and evaluate strategies to improve integration of evidence-based practice into public health programs and policy. Participants in the mini-course will be introduced to a range of implementation science methods, ranging from designing quasi-randomized studies to conducting qualitative research.

There is no additional cost to participate in this mini-course. More information about the mini-course can be found on the workshop website.
