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.

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
