    A Guide to Implementation Research in the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases

    Implementation research remains relatively new to population-based health programmes and is an area in which language and terminology are still being developed. In this guide implementation research is defined as “the scientific study of the processes used to implement policies and interventions and the contextual factors that affect these processes”. In other words, implementation research investigates the various factors that affect how a new policy or intervention may be used (or implemented) in real-life settings.

    As well as providing some context and introducing terminology, the guide covers the various steps needed to carry out implementation research, from the initial situation analysis (which ascertains the need for a policy or intervention) and knowledge synthesis (formally identifying and assessing relevant evidence) through to the four key parts of the implementation research cycle: identification of an appropriate policy or intervention; adaptation and piloting of the policy or intervention; implementing the policy or intervention and evaluating this; and finally, scaling up the policy or intervention.

    A Guide to Planning and Implementing Cultural Competence: Organizational Self-Assessment

The focus includes the development of assessment instruments and processes for both organizations and individuals.
