The live presentation has passed but you can still join us to attend a live Q&A session, view the presentation recording, and receive the event workbook.


With the COVID-19 pandemic, adaptations are top of mind right now.


You’re probably used to feeling the tension that surrounds adaptations: The push and pull of trying to adhere to the evidence and address the needs of stakeholders and adapt to the context and the end-users.


If you’re an implementer or a professional tasked with creating change, you understand that adaptations are now part of our everyday reality. But even though you know they’re necessary, it doesn’t mean you know how to strategically make them happen.


In today’s climate, we’ve shifted from questioning whether to adapt or not — to needing to adapt, and make adaptations happen quickly.


Whether you’ve had to make adaptations because of COVID-19 or because your intervention has been brought to a new setting, new context, or a new population, making adaptations is challenging. When you’re on the ground, they're especially difficult to navigate.

With so many different adaptation frameworks, planning for adaptations can be confusing and overwhelming.

Plus, we rarely dedicate time to plan for adaptations - we are just expected to make it happen.


If you are tasked with making adaptations, wouldn’t it be valuable to have a process to follow? One that’s rigorous but isn't too labour or time-intensive to be feasible?

At this special TCI virtual event, we are going to guide you through a specific process on how to effectively and proactively plan for adaptations.


We’ll provide you with a clear step-by-step roadmap on how to plan for adaptations that integrates and incorporates multiple adaptation frameworks that you can immediately apply to your intervention. We have pulled from the evidence and the frameworks so you don't have to (but can if you want to - since we will share a great reading list).


You’ll receive concrete and practical guidance on how to monitor adaptations as they are happening.


Plus, you’ll learn how to understand the potential impact of these adaptations on outcomes so you can balance adaptations and outcomes (i.e., avoid adaptations that are likely to reduce the effectiveness of your intervention).

Through this virtual event, you will:


Build your practical expertise in planning for adaptations that you can apply to your own implementation work


Develop a step-by-step adaptations plan so you can address challenges brought on by COVID-19 or because you are implementing in a new setting, a new context, or a new population


Consult with implementation science experts to ask your project-specific questions related to adaptations

If you are a professional tasked with implementing a program, policy, or innovation, this virtual event is for you.

To adapt or not?

  • Facilitators will tease apart the kinds of adaptations you might be considering

Step-by-step adaptation planning process

  • We will introduce a new step-by-step adaptation planning process you can use to plan for any kind of adaptation - both related to COVID-19 concerns and other implementation efforts
  • Strategically find ways to gain stakeholder support for a new approach to adaptations

Factors that affect adaptations and outcomes

  • Learn how to apply adaptations frameworks
  • Assess the potential impact of an adaptation on intervention outcomes

Who We Are

TCI offers evidence-based training and support to organizations and individuals as they work to foster and manage change in the workplace and across the health system. Our mission is to accelerate the application of theory and evidence-informed change methods to improve outcomes.


Founded in 2018, TCI has experienced rapid growth over the past two years. This expansion has been driven by our reputation for producing clear and practical guidance on applying implementation science to inform practice and enhance outcomes. Over 5000 professionals have enrolled in our online mini-course, Inspiring Change.

We’re actively building the bridge between implementation science and practice. We’re known for our ability to synthesize complex implementation science concepts into easy-to-understand actionable steps.


Our true specialization lies in our contribution to implementation practice: we draw from what’s in the literature and expertly link and assemble various theories, models, frameworks, and approaches for practical application.


Our expertise is in developing innovative processes that are informed by implementation science and designed for creating real-world change.

Dr. Julia Moore

Have a few questions? These answers might help.

 

What if I can’t attend the live online presentation?

No problem! Your ticket includes access to the recording.

 

What if I can't attend one of the virtual Q&A sessions?

We’ve got you covered. Your ticket includes access to a video where our facilitators will answer the most frequently asked questions that arose from the sessions.

 

Can I participate in more than one Q&A sessions?

Unfortunately, people are limited to attending one Q&A session, but we will create a recording of the frequently asked questions following all of the Q&A sessions.

 

Will the virtual Q&A sessions be recorded?

They will not be recorded to ensure confidentiality and encourage easy, informal conversation.

 

I’ve taken Implementation, Spread, and Scale. How will this event be different from what I learned in the course?

Implementation, Spread, and Scale introduced the key adaptation concepts and frameworks. The course included about 15 min of video about adaptations. This event does a deep dive into adaptations. Plus, based on course participant feedback, we have developed a new step-by-step adaptations process model to simplify the process for implementers. 


Do you offer any discounts?

Yes! We offer discounts for past Designing for Implementation participants, past Implementation, Spread, and Scale participants, groups of 3+ employees from the same organization, full-time students, and Individuals in low- and middle-income countries as defined by the World Bank

We are passionate about making implementation science practical and applicable.


I've been passionate about adaptations for over a decade. Working with frontline implementers and intermediary organizations has really highlighted that adaptations are a reality when implementing - but there aren't great processes to help implementers better plan for adaptations.

Developing a practical and easy-to-use adaptations process specifically for implementers has been a dream of mine, and I'm unbelievably excited to turn that into a reality.
