Kyoto University School of Public Health – Super Global University will be hosting “Implementation Research (IR) – Understanding and undertaking research towards enhancing the implementation and scale-up of health interventions in communities” workshop at the Kyoto University, with the support of UNU-IIGH, and the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR).
This short course aims to introduce fundamental terms, concepts, and principles of IR and their application. The course explains the basic components of IR frameworks, as well as key constraints to implementation. Additionally, the course provides knowledge on common methods and conduct of IR, ethics and quality assurance in IR, and key research communication skills required for disseminating implementation research findings and scale-up of intervention.
The course will cover five modules:
Module 1: Introduction to implementation research
Module 2: Researching context toward effective implementation
Module 3: Research methods and rigour in implementation research
Module 4: Developing indicators and measuring implementation outcomes
Module 5: Translation and dissemination of IR findings towards scale-up of interventions
The content will be delivered through a mixture of lecture, large-group exercises, and small-group work that will take participants through the process of developing an IR project.

The course is limited to invited participants only.
