Implementation Research Development Workshop (IRDW)
The Implementation Research Development Workshop (IRDW) is on a separate day where we invite SPG members to present “work in development” to receive expert feedback from colleagues. This one-day invited research meeting of experts in implementation research with junior and community colleagues will be held on the day following the SIRC Conference and will focus on maximizing the methodology of new and in-progress implementation research projects and building collaboration between participants. This unique format is based on the BRIDGE model used by the Psycho-Social Aspects of Diabetes research group.
In contrast to the conference symposia scheduled for May 16th and 17th that focus on presenting SPG members ongoing and past projects, presentations for the IRDW on Saturday, May 18th are on work in development where feedback can (a) have a helpful and substantial impact on the developing project or proposal and (b) lead to a useful discussion of cutting edge issues in implementation research.
SPG members–both junior and senior–who would like feedback on a project or proposal in development will have 45 minutes, of which 10-20 minutes will be to present their project (without using technology; i.e., no power point) and 20-40 minutes for feedback coordinated by a facilitator. A note-taker will record notes of the feedback so the presenter can be involved in the discussion.
We welcome a range of implementation research topics. We especially encourage work in progress involving socio-culturally diverse populations and settings as well as presentations by community providers interested in adding research evaluation to new or ongoing implementation efforts.
