Implementation

The point of applied research is to put the findings into practice, but that is surprisingly difficult to accomplish. Our implementation strategy uses down-to-earth but effective techniques to help achieve this. The ARC Implementation Leads, Andrée le May and John Gabbay, help the ARC bring together academics and people working in/using the local health and social care system who could make use of potentially useful research findings.  The emphasis is on facilitating open and robust relationships between all the interested parties, supporting them to fully explore the pros and cons of implementing the research in that particular practical and organisational context. This enables everyone to agree an implementation plan that they themselves can evaluate and adjust to ensure successful uptake.
