Implementation Science: Applying Research to Practice

The field of speech-language pathology, like many other health care fields, continues to experience a gap between what has been learned through research and what is done clinically. While there are many reasons for this, there has been a more concerted effort in recent years to actively address the problem, called implementation science. Defined as “the scientific study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of proven clinical treatments, practices, organizational, and management interventions into routine practice,” implementation science provides a promising way to bridge this recognized gap. This journal self-study contains articles from a Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research supplement that describe implementation science in detail, as well as highlight a few clinical areas in which this approach has been applied. Speech-language pathologists have an obligation to provide evidence-based practice and this self-study will help them move closer to achieving this often challenging goal.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • define and describe implementation science
  • explain how implementation science may contribute to the advancement of the profession and discipline of speech-language pathology
  • identify reasons why clinicians or clients/caregivers might not implement an intervention as described
  • compare and contrast implementation science and practice-based research
