The general aim of the course is to provide doctoral students with knowledge of theoretical frameworks, designs, methods and factors that are important for research on the implementation of evidence-based methods, practices and policy.
On course completion, the doctoral student shall be able to:
Knowledge and Understanding
• describe the frameworks and theories relevant to implementation research
• describe factors of importance in implementation and implementation research, such as the characteristics of the evidence-based methods, practices or policy to be implemented, the context and recipients, as well as methods and strategies to support implementation
• demonstrate knowledge about study designs and methods for studying different research issues in implementation
Competence and Skills
• apply their knowledge of implementation and implementation research by designing a research plan with research questions, study design, methods and procedures and with a theoretical base in implementation science
Judgement and Approach
• critically review, evaluate and reflect on the choice of research questions, study design, methods and procedures in implementation studies
• assess and give reason for the choice of research questions, study design, method and procedures in an implementation research plan
• identify and assess ethical issues related to implementation research
