Implementation Science in the Real World 2024

Welcome to ISRW24

Presented by the Australian Centre for Health Services Innovation, our two-day colloquium at QUT Gardens Point will place a spotlight on practising implementation science in the real world. Join local, national, and international implementation scientists to explore the latest developments in the field, case studies, and how to navigate challenges and opportunities within the health system.

With two international keynote speakers, the colloquium will be an interactive event designed to answer your questions on how health services can use implementation science to implement, measure, and sustain change.

The colloquium is preceded by an optional full-day introductory workshop exploring practical applications of implementation science.


Keynote Speakers

  • Professor Gregory Aarons

    Professor Gregory Aarons

    University of California San Diego

    Gregory Aarons, PhD is Professor of Psychiatry at UC San Diego, Co-Director of the UCSD Dissemination and Implementation Science Centre (UCSD-DISC), and Director of the Child and Adolescent Services Research Centre (CASRC). Prof. Aarons is a clinical and organisational psychologist who focuses on improving behavioural health care in service systems in the US and internationally. His research focuses on identifying and improving system, organisational, and individual factors that support implementation and sustainment of evidence-based practices and quality of care in health and allied health care settings. Prof. Aarons’ implementation and scale-up strategies are being used and tested in behavioural health, schools, child welfare, HIV prevention, and trauma treatment in the US, Norway, and West Africa. His most recent work is in developing and fostering community-academic partnerships to increase the use of research evidence in policy and practice.

  • Professor Trish Greenhalgh

    Professor Trish Greenhalgh

    University of Oxford

    Trish Greenhalgh is Professor of Primary Care Health Sciences and Fellow of Green Templeton College at the University of Oxford. She studied Medical, Social and Political Sciences at Cambridge and Clinical Medicine at Oxford before training first as a diabetologist and later as an academic general practitioner. She has a doctorate in diabetes care and an MBA in Higher Education Management. She leads a programme of research at the interface between the social sciences and medicine, working across primary and secondary care.

    Prof. Greenhalgh and colleagues developed the NASSS implementation framework for theorizing and evaluating Nonadoption, Abandonment, and challenges to the Scale-Up, Spread, and Sustainability of health and care technologies. The objective of this new framework is to produce an evidence-based, theory-informed, and pragmatic framework to help predict and evaluate the success of a technology-supported health or social care program.
