Conference Date & Time
Thursday, April 28 - Friday, April 29, 2022
10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

100% Virtual, Interactive & Engaging!

What is implementation Science (IS)? Is it something only for researchers? Wait, don't practitioners 'implement'?

Join us for a 2-day virtual conference designed to improve client outcomes and make a positive impact on the practice to research to practice gap in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). Engaging speakers - both clinicians and researchers- will share knowledge from current implementation science projects. Format will include small group interactive sessions to apply new concepts to your specific practice and/or research. Focus will be on both acquired and developmental disorders and content will be adapted to both novice and experts and anywhere along the way.

Learning Outcomes
Participants will be able to:
  •  DESCRIBE the fundamentals of implementation science - Who? What? Why? When? How?
  •  IDENTIFY how implementation science can be used to promote equity
  •  APPLY concepts of implementation science to make a positive impact on CSD clinical practice and research

Who Should Attend
  • CSD professionals: speech-language pathologists and audiologists, researchers, and students
  • CSD collaborators including educators, administrators, psychologists, other allied health professionals
  • Expert and novice welcome
  • Come with your colleagues to work on your specific goals together

Lightning Rounds
We'd love to hear your perspectives! Please consider sharing your work in a 10-15 minute "lightning round" talk. There are two ways to do this:

1. Share your clinical/educational dilemmas and how you've been working to improve them
2. Share your clinically relevant research, all studies at all stages are welcome with preference for studies using implementation science methodology.
