Our research team has just completed 5 new video clips on Implementation on my YouTube Channel found here;https://www.youtube.com/user/MelanieBarwick/videos
These resources are 5 video clips developed from our research on the implementation of evidence-based practices in child and youth mental health (and schools), funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). Each video clip captures high level messages related to implementation, and can be used educationally to share knowledge about these concepts with a variety of audiences. You can also use them to help prepare implementation teams in whatever context/sector you are working. We hope you will enjoy them and that they prove useful to you. Please share them with others!
Other KT and Implementation Resources can be found at www.melaniebarwick.com
Feel free to use & share :)
Hope to see you all in Sydney at the Australian Implementation Conference in September, and best wishes for a safe and happy summer!

This paper published in Health Policy and Planning expands on a WHO framework that looks at six key elements supporting evidence use in policy-making processes (climate; production of research; push efforts; facilitation of user pull; user-pull efforts; exchange efforts). The paper employs these elements to outline 10 publicly available resources that can facilitate the use of research evidence in the health policy process.
This paper published in Systematic Reviews develops a framework for translating systematic reviews into short accessible briefings. The framework helps researchers present and contextualize evidence from systematic reviews in a way that addresses real-life problems in response to requests from decision-makers.
This study, published in Implementation Science, engaged patients and physicians in the development of Decision Boxes, which are short clinical summaries covering medical questions that do not have a single best answer. Decision Boxes help clinicians communicate the risks and benefits of different options to patients so they can make an informed decision together.
The Guideline Implementability Research and Application Network is a collaboration of international guideline developers, implementers, and researchers who are working to identify and describe existing implementability tools, and develop and evaluate new tools. This refers to information that helps health professionals understand how to plan for, accommodate, implement, and evaluate use of guidelines. Please help us to define and identify additional implementability tools by completing a brief survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/W89ZPSP
G-I-N North America will co-sponsor with the New York Academy of Medicine a two-day conference on “Evidence-based Guidelines Affecting Policy, Practice and Stakeholders”. The aim of this conference is to provide a platform for constructive dialogue and collaboration between otherwise disparate perspectives that affect development of evidence based guidelines, their translation to clinical practice, and their value and impact on health care and patient outcomes. The event will take place in New York on December 10-11, 2012.
