Title: Optimizing post-discharge support for secondary prevention in coronary heart disease: what can implementation science bring to the table?

Date and Time: Thursday, December 16, 2021 | 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. EST

Description: Post-discharge care for patients with coronary heart disease is often fragmented meaning that not all patients receive evidence-based care for secondary prevention which negatively impacts patients, healthcare providers, and health systems. In this interactive 2-hour session, we highlighted some of the key challenges to implementing evidence-based practices post-discharge and covered topics such as transitional care, treatment adherence and cardiac rehabilitation, and virtual care innovation. Our overall aim was to connect individuals interested in this topic area and begin building an implementation-focused multidisciplinary research network to improve care for patients with coronary heart disease. 

Title: Hospital-based knowledge translation and implementation programs: What can we learn from each other?

Date and Time: Wednesday December 16, 2020 | 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. EST

Description: The goal of this session was to connect individuals who work with knowledge translation and implementation programs in hospital settings and to identify opportunities for networking and learning from each other’s experiences. Objectives of the session were to learn about project types, work approaches, organizational structures, and funding models of different hospital-based implementation groups, and to discuss challenges and successes experienced by hospital-based implementation groups.
