Learning Series

Implementation science plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between research and practice. It helps to ensure evidence-informed interventions translate effectively into real-world settings, ultimately improving outcomes for individuals, organizations, and communities.

Successful implementation is vital for organizational and program success. This learning series addresses all levels of expertise, equipping you with the knowledge, tools, and strategies to enhance implementation. By integrating principles of implementation science into your work, you can increase program effectiveness, improve community outcomes, and foster positive change.

This Implementation Learning Series offers curated content, opportunities for practical application, and the flexibility to learn at your own pace. You can self-select lessons based on your needs and interests. It has been designed to strengthen the implementation knowledge, skills, and capacity of those working in mental health promotion, mental illness prevention, youth substance use prevention and other related fields that focus on the upstream determinants of population wellness.

Each unit explores different critical components of implementation science:

Unit 1: Introduction to Implementation, introduces implementation science including key definitions, concepts, theories, models and frameworks  and describes the four stages of implementation.

Unit 2: Engage and Explore, focuses on building implementation teams, and engaging stakeholders to identify programs or practices that best meet the needs of the local context.

Unit 3: Plan and Prepare, explores building and defining an implementation plan (including a theory of change) and increasing team capacity and readiness to initiate the plan. 

Unit 4 (Deliver and Refine) and Unit 5 (Sustain and Scale) will cover the last two stages of implementation. These units will be coming soon.
