Health interventions are important but without effective strategies to enhance their translation on a broad scale they cannot improve the health of populations in BC or Canada. Policy makers want to know how health promotion (or any) interventions that led to better health on a small scale can be disseminated– while retaining their effectiveness. Currently there is an evidence gap as scale-up studies of effective health promoting interventions, are almost non-existent. I will present the central tenets of conceptual frameworks that guide implementation of interventions delivered at scale. I will describe implementation evaluation and discuss ‘the tug of war’ between adaptation and fidelity, especially as interventions are delivered at larger and larger scale. I will embed implementation and scale-up science within a real world scale-up study that I lead, in collaboration with an interdisciplinary team of researchers, BC Ministry of Health and many community partner organizations.
By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Differentiate between implementation, scale-up and scalability
- Describe the central tenets of implementation and scale up frameworks in health promotion
- Describe central tenets of implementation and scale-up evaluation
- Apply their learning to a real world setting.
