Implementation of evidence-based interventions takes an average of 17 years to convert 14% of research findings into routine daily practice. Implementation science is the scientific study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine practice and, hence, to improve the quality and effectiveness of health services.  Learning Objectives: (1) describe implementation science and its relevance in the context of current health policies and agenda as it pertains to older adults; (2) describe research designs that are unique to the field of implementation science; (3) review the key characteristics of designing and evaluating a hybrid type 1 effectiveness-implementation study in the acute care setting; and (4) discuss the key characteristics of designing and evaluating a hybrid type 3 effectiveness-implementation study in the community care setting.
