Visiting Professorship: James M. Flaherty
Brief Description of Work:
The goal of this Flaherty Visiting Professorship Award is to strengthen collaborations between Canadian and Irish centres of excellence in implementation science, behaviour change and evidence synthesis. Implementation science, which is the study of approaches to enhance the translation of research into health services and health policy planning, has been identified as a key gap in Ireland by the Health Research Board in Ireland. This award has the potential to address this gap. It will do so by developing capacity in implementation science, facilitating planning for better infrastructure to support integrated knowledge translation and strengthening international networks.
