Implementation research seeks to understand the processes and factors that are associated with successful integration of evidence-based interventions within a particular setting. It further assesses whether the core components of the original intervention were faithfully transported to the real-world setting and is also concerned with the adaptation of the implemented intervention to the local context.
Although basic research is usually performed without consideration of practical ends, the function of applied research is to provide implementable answers. The ultimate goal of dissemination and implementation science is to ensure that advances in health science become standards for care in all populations and all health care settings
This Special Issue of IJERPH called “Implementation Research in Chronic Disease Prevention and Control” will help to disseminate the results of successful implementation research projects in chronic disease prevention and control.
