Planning for Implementation Practice


Is your team looking to implement a new practice, intervention or innovation?
Do you need to develop an implementation plan but you’re not sure where to start?

PIP™ Course Overview

Implementing evidence-based practices is a complex process. There are dozens of implementation theories, models and frameworks in the literature, but knowing which one to use and when is often a barrier to implementation on the ground. The Planning for Implementation Practice (PIP™) workshop provides teams with a practical approach to developing an implementation plan for a new intervention, practice or innovation. PIP™ covers the core elements of implementation science with a focus on learning and planning. Participants will gain a foundational understanding of implementation science and learn how to use an evidence-based implementation planning framework.

Who should take PIP™?

The workshop is intended for implementers, researchers, practitioners, community partners and policy/decision-makers. PIP™ is appropriate for implementation teams from any field or sector who are:

  • new to implementation science; and
  • currently working to implement a practice, intervention or innovation in their setting.

Participants must attend as a team (2-4 multidisciplinary team members).

Learning Objectives

PIP supports participants to achieve the following:

  • Improve their understanding of implementation science and factors affecting the success of an implementation endeavour
  • Acquire and apply new knowledge and skill for implementation planning
  • Develop a draft implementation plan for a practice, intervention or innovation they want to implement in their setting
