Biomedical research constantly produces new findings - but often these are not routinely translated into health care practice. Implementation research is the scientific study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of clinical research findings and other evidence- based practices into routine practice, and hence to improve the quality and effectiveness of health care. It includes the study of influences on healthcare professional and organisational behaviour. This lack of routine uptake is strategically important for the development of healthcare as it clearly places an invisible ceiling on the potential for biomedical research to enhance health outcomes. Further, it is scientifically! Important because it identifies the behaviour of healthcare professionals and healthcare organisations as key sources of variance requiring improved empirical and theoretical understanding before effective intervention can be reliably achieved. Target audience: Implementation researchers, clinical governance leads, clinicians interested in quality improvement, policy makers. Frequency: Electronic open access.
