Event description

Description

Igniting innovation and thinking through implementation with Normalization Process Theory (NPT)

The Institute of Health Economics is pleased to present a two-day workshop for policy leaders, healthcare providers, managers, and researchers involved in the planning and implementation of health innovation, with renowned speakers Dr. Carl May, Professor of Medical Sociology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and Dr. Tracy Finch, Professor of Healthcare & Implementation Science at Northumbria University.

Drs. Carl May and Tracy Finch will be co-leading a two-day workshop that will emphasize the collaborative nature of implementation work in health care. Through group work, participants will learn about NPT-based tools for designing and developing implementation projects. Participants will have an opportunity to develop and refine plans for implementing and evaluating their own projects, with input from fellow participants and workshop facilitators.

The two-day workshop will be preceded by a breakfast keynote presentation by Dr. May titled Implementation science: If it's not knowledge translation, and not change management, what is it? Participants are asked to register for the keynote presentation and two-day workshop individually.

Purpose of the workshop: This workshop will provide participants with a solid grounding in Normalization Process Theory (NPT), and an understanding of how to apply it to practical problems in implementation. NPT provides tools for understanding the implementation, embedding, and integration of new practices. It focuses on the things that people do rather than their attitudes or intentions, and it emphasizes the collaborative nature of implementation work. Through groupwork, participants will learn about NPT-based tools for designing and developing implementation projects. They will have an opportunity to develop and refine plans for implementing and evaluating their own projects, with input from fellow participants and workshop facilitators.

Normalization Process Theory is “a sociological toolkit that can be used to understand the dynamics of implementing, embedding, and integrating some new technology or complex intervention.”1

Preparation required: Participants will be asked to prepare a conference-style poster that outlines an implementation project they are planning or currently working on. It should cover objective, description of the intervention(s), method of delivery, and method of evaluation. This may be a team poster, where multiple participants are involved in a collaborative project.
