Implementation Science workshop

The Nursing and Midwifery Implementation Science Academy held the first Maridulu Budyari Gumal Implementation Science Workshop on the 5th December 2019. Sixty six participants representing 4 Local Health Districts (LHDs), 11 Hospitals, 3 Universities attended.

The interactive workshop guided clinicians through the process of introducing and imbedding best practice or evidence-based initiates into their workplace in a sustainable way.

The workshop was facilitated by Implementation Science expert’s Dr Elizabeth Lynch and Dr Shanthi Ramanathan.

Prof Rebecca Lawton, Director of the NIHR Yorkshire and Humber Patient Safety Translational Research Centre in the United Kingdom, was the Keynote speaker and gave a very insightful presentation on ‘patient involvement in improving patient safety’.

Ten translational projects submitted by each Maridulu Budyari Gumal LHD were selected for workshopping in groups throughout the day, with teams developing an implementation framework for their projects.

Workshop evaluations were very positive –

100% of respondents either agreed or strongly agreed that:

• the workshop was relevant to their work

• the workshop was at the right level

• they could apply the knowledge and skills they learnt

• the aims and objectives of the workshop were achieved

• the overall course presentation was good.

95% strongly agreed or agreed that they would recommend the workshop to others.

Another workshop is planned for 2020 and details will be posted on the Maridulu Budyari Gumal website.
