    Implementation research is a powerful tool for improving the impact of health interventions in lower- and middle-income country (LMIC) settings, where implementation bottlenecks are often the most pervasive. Yet, training in LMICs need to be refined in order to best enable researchers in these contexts to utilise implementation research in their daily practice. This is the first workshop in developing a framework for the next generation of training for implementation research practitioners in LMICs.


    Prioritise persistent and emerging challenges with regards to the design and the delivery of implementation research training for researchers in LMICs, with input from an array of experts, trainees and practitioners.
