Outcome Imps: Using evidence to improve outcomes


Put your energies into the areas proven by Implementation science to make a difference


Sometimes services can lose their impact over time, or when they start working in a new area the services aren't as effective as in the original sites. Scaling-up services proven to be effective elsewhere can be problematic in terms of ensuring they 'fit' and work within the local context. Implementation science has identified some of the key drivers or components which help services run efficiently. Paying close attention to these drivers can reap big rewards in terms of operationalising efficiently and improving outcomes.


Outcome Imps can help you assess where the issues currently are, develop implementation plans, manualise programmes so they can be scaled-up, and troubleshoot key implementation drivers such as leadership, staffing and delivery context
