The processes for purposefully producing improvements in human services are now understood as “implementation.” Implementation practice, science, and policy to support the effective use of interaction-based innovations are outlined in this Brief.

The purpose of this brief is to create a deeper understanding of the benefits of co‐creation approaches and the benefits of engaging a range of stakeholders in implementing, improving, and sustaining the use of research evidence to improve outcomes.

This white paper explores how funders and program developers can partner with rural communities to achieve improved outcomes for individuals and families. Research on implementation of health and human services programming over the past decade demonstrates that achieving outcomes requires not just effective practices or strong communities, but three aligned and interdependent implementation components.
SISEP
OSEP’s Results Driven Accountability is designed to assure educators have the supports necessary to address the needs of all children, including children with disabilities. OSEP-funded Centers are encouraged to support state education systems as they take charge in making systemic changes that lead to improved outcomes for students. Data are now available that demonstrate capacity for change can be purposefully developed in complex state education systems by using active implementation science as a change method. The data are based on a standard measure that has been used to systematically assess capacity development within and across states.
