Part 2: Drivers of implementation and change

Last week, the CAMH Health Promotion Resource Centre hosted the second in a three-part webinar series on Implementation Science called “Drivers of Implementation and Change.” Featuring presenters from CAMH’s Provincial System Support Program, the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation, and Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, the webinar provided an overview of the drivers for implementing change based on the National Implementation Research Network’s Active Implementation Framework (NIRN).

During the first half of the webinar, Alexia Jaouich, from CAMH’s Provincial System Support Program, highlighted the three main implementation drivers: competency drivers, organizational drivers, and leadership drivers.

In the second half, Hélène Gagné, from the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation, spoke with Peggy Govers, from the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, about her health unit’s implementation of the Triple P Positive Parenting Program. Peggy shared insights on the importance of implementation drivers in the roll out of Triple P. For instance, Peggy shared that leadership drivers allowed opportunities for her health unit to start discussions with other stakeholders, including building a common language.

Finally, there are still a few more registration spots for the third and final webinar in this series called Part 3 – Implementation Science Tools. We will take a closer look at some of the tools of implementation with examples of their use on the ground.
