IMPLEMENT@Bangor Implementation Programme
Jo Rycroft-Malone and Professor Christopher R. Burton
Who are we?
We are a group of enthusiastic healthcare professionals, researchers, students, academic staff and public representatives who share a mutual interest in bridging knowledge and practice. Our mission is to grow an internationally recognised community to create knowledge of what works and why. Implement@Bangor has been successful in attracting significant amounts of international and national research income to fund a programme of research on implementation, including working across organisations and is a core part of the Bangor Institute of Health and Medical Research (BIHMR).
- To study the application of implementation to increase the use of evidence in practice
- To enhance the use of evidence within the design and delivery of health and public services
- To accelerate the theory and evidence base about implementation
- To improve the capability of researchers and professionals to study and undertake implementation
- To develop organisational partnerships and infrastructure to undertake and evaluate implementation activities
Our key areas of interest are:
- Partnership, collaboration and co-production
- Theory development and testing
- Impact and influence
- Stakeholder Engagement
- Implementation intervention evaluation
- Methodological innovation
- Service improvement and quality assurance
Ways of working
In creating an implementation active community we work with collaborators in a number of ways, including through competitively funded research studies, commissioned research, service evaluations, secondments, studentships and internships, together with an exciting range of research and taught post-graduate educational opportunities.
