Health Implementation Science and Technology (HIST) will advance research in the area of implementation science and the systematic uptake of evidence-based, technology-enhanced interventions into practice and policy.
To develop, deliver, and sustain research and expertise in Implementation I(IS) with Information and Communication technology (ICT) in Research, Collaboration / Networking, and Capacity Building.
A critical issue in health today is the gap between what we know can optimize health and health care and that which is implemented in everyday practice. Implementation science seeks to address this gap by understanding how best to ensure that evidence-based strategies to improve health are effectively delivered in clinical and public health practice.
To lead a programme of research training and collaboration that builds capacity in implementation science to facilitate change at patient and provider level and to inform standards of care and policy.
To be an acknowledged player in the international field of Implementation Science with technology to enhance implementation that will attract visiting academics and PhD students from around the world.
The planned HRI-HIST activities over the next three years will ensure that UL’s strategic objectives across many domains are realised and a strong foundation is established across this new cross-cutting field of research.
