Distortion of implementation techniques in health care: The case of ‘facilitation’

For full details refer to the event flyer

When applied to solving real-world problems of health care, service improvement techniques are likely to evolve over time in response to the context of their implementation. In this talk, Dr Kislov explores the evolution of facilitation, an implementation approach that can be broadly defined as enabling the processes of learning in group contexts and is often deployed to mobilize research knowledge into clinical practice. Drawing on the findings of a five-year longitudinal case study conducted in a UK-based collaborative research partnership, he argues that an uncritical and uncontrolled adaptation of implementation techniques may lead to their gradual distortion, undermining their promise to positively affect organizational learning processes and masking the unsustainable nature of the resulting improvement outcomes. An exploration of new ways of maintaining context-sensitive adaptation of implementation techniques without losing their core elements could provide a useful direction for future inquiry.
