The 5th Biennial Conference of the Society for Implementation Research Collaboration (SIRC) was held on September 13-14, 2019 at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. Preconference workshops occurred on September 12, 2019.
The goal of the 5th Biennial Conference of SIRC was to explore the ways in which research, policy and practice intersect to advance the field and improve outcomes for populations served. Where does the “rubber meet the road” and how do our advances in implementation science have a direct and relevant impact on policies and programs in real world settings? We hope that our 2019 conference provided the opportunity for implementation researchers, intermediaries, practitioners, policy makers and students to convene, share innovations and ideas, and learn from one another. We believe that, more than ever, it is important to create a space where interactive dialogue can enable us to better understand each other’s perspectives and advance our field.
