Table 3 Core principles underpinning the Greater Manchester CLAHRC implementation approach

From: The NIHR collaboration for leadership in applied health research and care (CLAHRC) for Greater Manchester: combining empirical, theoretical and experiential evidence to design and evaluate a large-scale implementation strategy

■ Evidence is broader than research
■ Good research is not enough to guarantee its uptake in practice
■ Rational/linear models are inadequate in planning and undertaking implementation
■ Acknowledgement of and responsiveness to the context of implementation
■ Tailored, multi-faceted approaches to implementation are needed
■ Importance of forming networks and building good relationships
■ Individuals are required in designated roles to lead and facilitate the implementation process
■ Integrated approach to the production and use of evidence about implementation
