You’re a rockstar SLP. You read the research. You eat, drink, sleep EBP- but something still feels like it’s missing... Reading the literature makes your brain hurt. You feel like you just can’t make this research-based practice stuff work. It’s like you’re jumping into the research-to-practice gap without a parachute. Enter implementation science-the game changer, your parachute. Ok, you’re probably like “Implementation what now? Never heard of it!” I’m with you. SIt tight, it will all make sense soon... In this episode, Dr. Cathy Bringer and Dr. Natalie Douglas uncover the what and why of implementation science and how it stands to change the EBP face of your day-to-day SLP life. There’s ah-ha moments, pats on the back, validation, and more as this down-to earth research duo acknowledge the short-comings of the traditional research model and promise a brighter research-to-practice future- tearing down hierarchies, building up clinicians, and using implementation science to study clinical practices that will actually work in the “real world”.
