Presentation Abstract


The importance of implementation science becomes more recognized in recent years in public health and clinical medicine. Implementation research possesses distinct characteristics. It concentrates on addressing actual challenges encountered in practices, identifying evidence-based practices to overcome these challenges, understanding the barriers and facilitators related to the uptake and implementation of such practices, and finally, devising strategies to facilitate the integration of them into routine practice. The PEDALS model has been developed by Prof. Roman XU to guide the conduct of implementation research. Two cases of studies related to flu vaccine implementation research will be used to illustrate the application of the PEDALS model and the principles of implementation research.
