Abstract 

Taking an efficacious health promotion program to scale, implementing it effectively and successfully maintaining its effectiveness is a complex and lengthy process. High quality implementation is associated with improved program outcomes, yet implementation and scale up processes are influenced by an array of factors beyond researcher control. There is consensus within the field of implementation science that intervention attributes, implementer and organisational characteristics, and environmental context all affect implementation and scale up; yet the challenge of identifying and assessing the presence and impact of these factors in real-world trials remains particularly challenging.

In this webinar, Associate Professors Luke Wolfenden and Chris Lonsdale will present two approaches to designing and conducting real-world intervention trials, to assess the implementation of nutrition policies and guidelines, and ways to enhance physical activity in the school setting. Both speakers will present strategies and challenges quantifying implementation quality and associating this with effectiveness in practice. Dr Harriet Koorts will chair the session, briefly introducing guiding models and frameworks in implementation science, clarifying some distinctions between implementation and scalability. The final 15 minutes of this webinar will allow for questions, discussion and debate.
