Important Note: This course is specifically intended for ReLAB-HS Implementation Science Foundational Training Groups. If you are from a ReLAB-HS country and want to be part of this training project please email Lucio Naccarella directly. Non-ReLAB-HS participants will be able to complete the course by watching the video(s) and completing the reading and the quiz. However, non-ReLAB-HS participants will NOT be able to participate in the brainstorming discussion groups or the key learning activities. We encourage you to use the discussion prompts to engage in conversations with fellow colleagues or students.


Evaluation is increasingly recognised as a continuous learning process: from initial planning of a new intervention, to adapting an intervention through evidence-based research, to implementation of the new intervention. Given the multiple challenges to implementing rehabilitation interventions, assessing both the implementation process and its measured outcomes is essential. The planning and creation of future implementation facilitation efforts depend on understanding what made an implementation strategy successful.This course, the third of four, is designed to inform the learner on implementation factors that can affect the implementation of evidence-based rehabilitation interventions, and how to use implementation strategies and outcome measures to assess the success of the implemented intervention.


This course aims to summarise how implementation evaluations can inform decisions about both the implementation process and outcomes of that process.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Videos
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz
  4. Optional Discussions
