Key Efficiency Issues:

  • Managing fidelity and supervision for multiple EBPs in one setting
  • Models/methods for reducing staff turnover
  • Training efficiency: How low can you go? Or how can you do it differently to keep the bar high?
  • Looking beyond training – feasible models and methods that implement and sustain EBPs for the long term
  • Community-led evaluations (engaging stakeholders to reduce burden and increase relevance)
  • Matching models of implementation to system needs and capacities

Using Available and Affordable Tools

  • Use of electronic health records, administrative data, progress monitoring, or other existing program resources to promote evaluation
  • (Continuous) Quality Improvement or examples of iterative small scale trials of change
  • Use of decision support tools
  • Use of computer-based/online implementation methodologies
  • Technological solutions: Machine learning, textual analysis, strategies for managing big data

Research Design and Statistical Solutions:

  • Adaptive and SMART designs
  • Analysis of qualitative data
  • Hybrid designs (effectiveness-implementation hybrids)
  • Methods that can rapidly inform health care practice

The 3rd Biennial conference was held in September 2015. Videos and slides of the conference content are forthcoming.
