Implementation science has focused mainly on the initial uptake and use of evidence-based practices. There has been less attention to the sustainment of the implemented intervention over time. The complexity of the rehabilitation setting brings its own set of implementation challenges, such as limited human resources, lack of workplace support for the new interventions, and high staff turnover. Implementation sustainment in low-middle income countries, adds another set of challenges: cultural differences, cost barriers, and accessibility.
This course, the final of four, is dedicated to sustaining the successful implementation of innovative systems-level rehabilitation interventions using implementation science to strengthen rehabilitation inclusive health systems.
This course aims to introduce the importance of implementation science capacity building and cover the multiple contextual factors that may influence the sustained use of implementation science approaches for successful uptake of new intervention implementation.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
