A convergence of cultures and strategies to improve Electronic Health Record implementation within a Tanzanian clinical environmentDownload
This research explored the question: “How can we improve the implementation of an Electronic Health Record (EHR) within a Tanzanian clinical environment?” The objectives included working with local stakeholders to identify opportunities to improve, and exploring barriers and facilitators to...
A multiple case history and systematic review of adoption, diffusion, implementation and impact of provincial daily physical activity policies in Canadian schoolsDownload
Background: Few children meet physical activity (PA) recommendations, and are therefore at increased risk for overweight/obesity and adverse health outcomes. To increase children’s opportunities for PA, several Canadian provinces have adopted school-based daily PA (DPA) policies. It is not clear...
Advancing the argument for validity of the Alberta Context Tool with healthcare aides in residential long-term careDownload
Background: Organizational context has the potential to influence the use of new knowledge. However, despite advances in understanding the theoretical base of organizational context, its measurement has not been adequately addressed, limiting our ability to quantify and assess context in...
Assessment of Variation in the Alberta Context Tool: The Contribution of Unit Level Contextual Factors and Specialty in Canadian Pediatric Acute Care SettingsDownload
Background: There are few validated measures of organizational context and none that we located are parsimonious and address modifiable characteristics of context. The Alberta Context Tool (ACT) was developed to meet this need. The instrument assesses 8 dimensions of context, which comprise 10...
Collaboration among project participants is key to the success of construction projects. When project information is not efficiently communicated or easily shared among project stakeholders, such conditions often lead to cost overruns and schedule delays. Particularly, this phenomenon can...
Purpose: Cross-education is a neural phenomenon where an untrained limb improves after unilateral training of the opposite homologous limb. It has been extensively studied in the healthy population and shows promise for post-stroke rehabilitation. Despite this promise, cross-education has not...
Background: The context of healthcare organizations such as hospitals is increasingly accepted as having the potential to influence the use of new knowledge. However, the mechanisms by which the organizational context influences evidence-based practices are not well understood. Current measures...
Evolving the theory and praxis of knowledge translation through social interaction: A social phenomenological studyDownload
Background: As an inherently human process fraught with subjectivity, dynamic interaction, and change, social interaction knowledge translation (KT) invites implementation scientists to explore what might be learned from adopting the academic tradition of social constructivism and an interpretive...
Implementation and Verification of Simple Concrete Biaxial Models Under Monotonic, Cyclic, and Dynamic LoadingDownload
An accurate prediction of the response and strength of concrete elements, which exhibit nonlinear behavior even under moderate loading, is essential for evaluating their safety and serviceability. To describe the nonlinear behavior of this material, continuum damage mechanics has been...
