Improving outcomes across communities is best achieved through the use of high-quality evidence that is implemented well. In order to achieve this, systems, policy and political environments need to be hospitable to evidence informed approaches and what it takes to achieve effective and sustainable implementation in the real world. At EIS 2021, we will explore the intersections of evidence, implementation science, policy and politics and how we can bring these sectors together to realise a better future for all.
1. Fast, good, cheap - choose two! Generating and implementing rigorous policy and practice-ready evidence
The trade-off between time, cost and quality is a challenge faced by grant-makers, funders, and those who generate and support the implementation of evidence. This Summit theme explores the challenge of accessing and implementing timely, high quality evidence and innovative approaches that aim to deliver evidence to the people who need to use it - faster.
2. Context counts: translation, adaptation and transportability of evidence across people, place, culture and systems
