What is implementation science?

Implementation science involves practitioners and researchers working together in partnerships to create equitable outcomes. Join us for the second annual Implementation Science IS For All, 2-day virtual conference designed to improve client outcomes and make a positive impact on the practice to research to practice gap in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD).

Engaging speakers will share how they developed, maintained, and sustained partnerships in implementation science projects. To showcase these real-life partnerships, most of the presentations are co-presented by researchers and practitioners who are currently working together. 

Participant Experiences

“Such an engaging format! Online conferences can be awful, but this was more interactive than many in person conferences I've been at!”

“Speakers were engaging and content was relevant despite my area of clinical/research interest falling in between acquired and pediatric (pediatric dysphagia). The underlying tone of the presenters, facilitators, and attendees was warm, welcoming, and supportive.”

“I loved the interactive nature, the short yet informative sessions, great engaging speakers, relevant and tangible content, and loads of wonderful resources!!”

“I loved making connections with clinicians and researchers from different backgrounds and points in their careers.”

“I learned so many vocabulary terms and frameworks that I am SO excited to implement immediately at work

“It felt like people were discussing a real culture change in the bridge between clinicians and researchers, which is a breath of fresh air to a clinician who works for a medical school.”

“The energy and enthusiasm were unmatched by any other conference I have attended. I feel like I now have a network of people I can reach out to for support and a wealth of resources to pore over as I work to apply concepts to my own ideas.”

“WINS: centering equity and calls to action about building relationships and creating authentic partnerships

“The conference design to bridge discussions between research and practice was masterful.”

“I appreciated hearing real talk about how researchers may consider looking at things differently to help connect with clinicians.”
