Implementation Science 2.0 – Show me the evidence!

Bianca Albers - Senior Advisor, Australian Centre for Evidence and Implementation

Event details

The field of implementation science has undergone an impressive growth in the past two decades. A large number of frameworks, models and concepts have emerged, all aiming to support researchers, organisational leaders, practitioners and other human service professionals in building, integrating and utilising evidence in their daily work – for the benefit of the target populations they serve.

This presentation takes the temperature on the current status quo within implementation science: Where are we in building the evidence base for the field? What are common agreements, where are the gaps, and what needs to be done in the decade ahead?

Bianca Albers is a Senior Advisor, Evidence in Practice and Policy, at the Australian Centre for Evidence and Implementation (CEI). Her work focuses on knowledge synthesis and translation; the implementation and evaluation of evidence-informed programs, practices and service models; and on building the capacity within organisations and services to implement and sustain evidence-informed practices and policies.

She is a staff member at the University of Melbourne’s Department of Social Work, where she developed and now teaches the first Post-Graduate Certificate in Implementation Science in the Australasian region.

Ms Albers has a strong involvement with the international world of implementation science. She has co-chaired the first three Global Implementation Conferences held in 2011, 2013 and 2015, is one of the co-founders of the Danish Implementation Network and currently chairs the European Implementation Collaborative (EIC) and the planning of the third Nordic Implementation Conference to be held in Denmark in 2018.

In 2015, Ms Albers was the lead editor of the book ‘Implementering’, which introduces implementation science to the area of child and youth services in Denmark and includes key contributions from Dr. Alison Metz (NIRN) and professor Per Nilsen, Linköping University, Sweden.
