Translation Science Theories and Models Discussion

Translation Science Theories and Models
Purpose
The purpose of this discussion is to provide you an opportunity to examine the applicability of translation science theories and models to all phases of a practice change project with an emphasis on sustainability of the evidence-based intervention beyond implementation.

Instructions
Reflect on your practice problem as you consider possible solutions and address the following:
1. Select one of the four translation science theories or models introduced in this week’s lesson. These include Diffusion of Innovation, Knowledge-to-Action, i-PARIHS, and Normalization Process Theory.
2. Determine one sustainability strategy found in your selected translation science theory or model. Describe how the specific sustainability strategy you selected supports sustainability of the evidence-based intervention beyond the implementation phase of a practice change project.
