Want to learn more about Implementation Science?
During November 2021 Health Translation SA launched a new Spotlight Series!
The Spotlight Series is a new initiative through which Health Translation SA will offer information and activities relating to a component of research translation or specific translation projects.
Throughout November 2021 HTSA presented a series of four webinars, and shared resources and training opportunities, to raise awareness and understanding of Implementation Science; what it is, why it is important and where to learn more.
Check out the Spotlight on Implementation Science: Content Summary for a concise overview of the key messages, webinar recording links and resources that were shared across the month.
Please find below a range of helpful resources and learning opportunities on many aspects of Implementation Science.
