“the scientific study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine practice, and, hence, to improve the quality and effectiveness of health services and care” Eccles & Mitmann. Implement. Sci. 2006; 1:1
A strong collaboration with clinical practice, a combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods, the combination of (proximal and distal) implementation and summative outcomes, theory as an essential compontent for contextual analysis, ... these are only a few of the very valuable principles prof. De Geest has shared with us in her first lectures. Looking forward to the upcomming sessions!
