PREDICT would like to thank all those who attended the workshop “Implementation research in the PREDICT network – what is implementation research, what have we achieved and where are we heading?” on the Thursday 31st March. Attended by 33 participants, it was an engaging and informative workshop. We were very fortunate to hear presentations from Dr Lou Atkins on the use of implementation theories and frameworks and Prof Sandy Middleton on implementation research study designs; Prof Dominique Cadilhac provided informative examples of how clinical registries can drive improvement in care and Dr Dustin Ballard on optimising implementation research in the Electronic Health Record.
The afternoon session was dedicated to identifying priorities for implementation research in paediatric emergency medicine and identifying the research training needs for the PREDICT network.
We hope that this will be the first of several workshops to improve implementation research capacity within the network. For further information please contact Emma (firstname.lastname@example.org)
