Implementation science links research and practice, aiming to improve and promote the integration of research-based knowledge into real-world settings. It seeks to understand the behavior of healthcare professionals and other stakeholders as a key variable in the sustainable dissemination, adoption, and implementation of evidence-based interventions. The intent of implementation science is to investigate the bottlenecks that impede effective implementation, test new approaches to improve healthcare delivery, as well as determine a causal relationship between interventions and their impact. The primary goal of this session will be to introduce the key principles of implementation science as applied to perioperative quality improvement. Note: Panelist Dr. Steven Asch is an expert in implementation science who is Director of Center for Innovation to Implementation at VA Palo Alto and Professor at Stanford. He is local and therefore agreed to speak specifically at ASA San Francisco.
