Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on implementation research (IR)
November 14 - December 23
Dear Students & Colleagues,
We would like to invite you to participate in the free "Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on
implementation research (IR)", which will take place from November 14 through December 23, 2022.
Introduction to the course:
IR is important for designing strategies or solutions to overcome bottlenecks that prevent proven and
innovative public health interventions from reaching the people who need them. This ensures that these
interventions are used in a manner that results in the outcome for which they were intended.
This 6-week MOOC is an in-depth, online training program taught by leading experts in the field for
public health students and researchers/academics, policymakers, managers of disease control programs,
and other health professionals.
The MOOC focuses on core concepts and how to design and evaluate solid IR projects to improve
control of infectious diseases of poverty and produce better population health outcomes.
This MOOC session is organized by the research team from the University Malaya, UNU-IIGH, and IHSR
known as the TDR Regional Training Centre for Implementation Research in the Western Pacific Region
The objective of the course is to build capacity in how to identify the challenges of various health
settings, assess the appropriateness of existing strategies, and develop new interventions and strategies
by working with communities and stakeholders.
Experts guide participants through the core concepts of IR, including modules that address how to:
Identify the challenges of various health settings;
Assess the appropriateness of existing disease control strategies;
Develop new interventions and strategies by working with communities and stakeholders;
Specify IR questions;
Design rigorous research projects. This includes how to identify IR outcomes, evaluate
effectiveness, and make plans to scale up;
implementation in real-life settings.
By the end of the course, it is anticipated that you will be able to:
design your own implementation research projects;
critically evaluate and use the evidence produced by other implementation research projects;
commission robustly designed implementation research projects
with the ultimate goal of enhancing the evidence base of effective ways to improve the health of the
populations we serve.
