HEURTIN-ROBERTS, Suzanne (NCI/UMD) and REISINGER, Heather Schacht (VA Iowa City/U Iowa) Introduction to Implementation Science for Anthropologists: Overview and Engagement. Implementation science (IS) is an interdisciplinary, team-based field dedicated to putting research findings successfully to use in real-world settings. Applied anthropology has contributed significantly to IS, and can contribute even further by engaging in IS’ theoretical and methodological direction and development. This didactic and experiential workshop will provide an overview of implementation science including its use in health care and public health, the use of qualitative and quantitative research methods, common designs, processes and key issues facing implementation science. The importance of integrating an anthropological perspective into IS will be discussed throughout the workshop.
