Présenté en association avec l’École de santé publique de l’Université de Montréal (ESPUM)
Research funding councils, such as the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, have made numerous investments in implementation science and in population health intervention research. There are some important areas of convergence in these two fields. The purpose of this presentation is to explore key points of intersection and to consider how complementary work in these two fields could be further optimized. Several examples will be used to highlight intersection parameters including drivers of inequities, contextual influences on and interactions with interventions, outcome assessment and scalability. Suggestions for an emergent research agenda will be proposed.
