Research News


January 13, 2021

Produced by implementation scientists at QUERI's Center for Evaluation and Implementation Resources (CEIR), with contributions from more than 50 multi-disciplinary experts and health system leaders, the QUERI Implementation Roadmap reduces the gap between evidence and practice through strong quality improvement efforts. The Roadmap drives the adoption of high-value research innovations by empowering frontline providers, researchers, administrators, health system leaders, as well as Veterans and their families. With a focus on the development of practical products, including an implementation playbook and a data-driven evaluation plan to support further scale-up and spread of an effective practice, the Roadmap is uniquely suited for use in real-world settings.

The QUERI Roadmap Guide de-mystifies the application of implementation strategies and rigorous evaluation of these efforts to support and empower practitioners and inform policy and population health improvements. Combining real-world experience with state-of-the art implementation and quality improvement science, the QUERI Roadmap Guide makes implementation science usable and practical for investigators and practitioners to the ultimate benefit of patients.

The Roadmap is essential to a learning organization because without implementation planning at all levels of the health system, it can take years for a fraction of effective health care practices to reach patients who need them the most. A comprehensive guide for utilizing the QUERI Implementation Roadmap can be found on the QUERI website here.
