Guiding Principles and Core Competencies for Implementation Practice
Implementation support practitioners are professionals who support implementation and build implementation capacity in human service organisations and systems. This practice guide and practitioner profile identify the competencies that implementation support practitioners need to support effective implementation and scaling of evidence-informed practices, programmes and policies, to improve outcomes for people and communities. The implementation practice guide and profile should be of use to anyone interested in developing the competencies of professionals who are facilitating and supporting the implementation of evidence-informed changes in service delivery.
An international collaboration of implementation colleagues at the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN), University of North Carolina, the European Implementation Collaborative and the Centre for Effective Services (Ireland) produced this practice guide and profile in 2020, based on the implementation science literature and real-world experience of implementation support practitioners.
