Understanding the complexities of implementation is the secret to disseminating new knowledge into functioning health care systems.

This lecture will describe the Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers (INTERACT), a large-scale nursing home quality improvement program designed to reduce hospital admissions and emergency department visits. Dr. Mor will discuss how challenges in the implementation process influenced the findings of INTERACT, and how INTERACT can help inform future efforts to integrate evidence and practice.
