Evaluation and implementation science focuses on generating evidence to inform better policy and practice. It also seeks to better understand development, uptake, adoption, and implementation of evidence-based interventions, health services and policies. The stream includes research across the whole continuum of health interventions from those targeting the social determinants of health to those addressing health service innovation. Researchers in this stream have specific expertise in:

  • Developing innovative approaches to evaluation
  • Social determinants of health
  • Health promotion
  • Quality and safety in health
  • Public engagement in health
  • Cultural Competency
  • Health system reform
  • Integrated care
  • Diffusion of innovation and network analysis
  • Population health planning and implementation
  • Governance for health
  • Frameworks and theories of the policy process.
