Dr. John Øvretveit discussed work described in his recent article published in the Society for Implementation Research Collaboration’s new journal, Implementation Research and Practice (IRP). The webinar was moderated by Dr. Sonja Schoenwald, Co-Editor-in-Chief of IRP. Dr. Øvretveit described a rapid implementation research project with the Stockholm health care system to assist the system to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. It uses this example to illustrate some ways in which implementation research and knowledge can contribute to improving service responses to the pandemic and its consequences as these evolve over the coming months. A sub-specialty of rapid implementation science was proposed to provide practical assistance and as one way to develop implementation research. The full text of his article can be found here:
