Implementation Science in Environmental Health

road sign that reads implementation

Theme two of the NIEHS Strategic plan (Promoting Translation – Data to Knowledge to Action) supports research to develop, test, and validate evidence-based prevention and intervention strategies, to reduce or avoid exposures and their resulting health impacts. The NIEHS supports the use of implementation science to improve environmental public health through the adaptation, uptake, sustainment and spread of evidence-based interventions, practices, and policies that prevent or mitigate harmful exposures and support environmental health equity.

What is Implementation Science?

Implementation science (IS) is the study of methods to promote the adoption and integration of evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies into routine health care and public health settings to improve our impact on population health. This discipline is characterized by a variety of research designs and methodological approaches, partnerships with key stakeholder groups (e.g., patients, providers, organizations, systems, and/or communities), and the development and testing of ways to effectively and efficiently integrate evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies into routine health settings.
