Implementation of performance-based cognitive assessments using implementation science frameworks Register online by June 6, 2017 - 6/13/2017
Presenters: Megan Kohls-Wiebe and Darcy Butterworth
Implementation of standardized performance-based cognitive assessments alongside traditional measures of cognition is considered best-practice in Occupational Therapy. This webinar will demonstrate how the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) evidence-based implementation science frameworks were used to achieve systematic and sustainable implementation of four performance-based cognitive assessments in a rehabilitation facility. Plan-Do-Study-Act cycles were piloted to refine training/coaching methods and supporting materials prior to implementation. NIRN tools – used to analyse systems and drivers, to develop operational definitions of desired practices and outcomes, and to identify how outcomes would be measured – will be discussed.
After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
1. Define implementation science.
2. Identify the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) Stages of Implementation.
3. Describe how implementation science and the NIRN Stages of Implementation can be used to implement performance-based cognitive assessments in a clinical setting.
