Achieving the Goal of Optimal Healthcare: Lessons from Implementation Science by 

Dr. Heather Colquhoun
Associate Professor

Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy
Temerty Faculty of Medicine
University of Toronto

Global estimates of overuse and underuse of evidence-based healthcare practices range across care practices and countries but indicate that 50-70% of the care delivered is not optimal. The field of implementation science has emerged in force to decrease the size of these care gaps and reduce the research waste. This talk will address lessons learned from the field of implementation science with a focus on how to achieve optimal healthcare, including areas where improvements have been seen, require our attention, and methods that are emerging to advance this field.

Dr. Heather Colquhoun
