2021 UNC Institute on Implementation Science Virtual Series: Equity and Implementation Science: An Urgent Partnership 

January 28, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm



This event was co-hosted by the Jordan Institute for Families | UNC School of Social Work, the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, and National Implementation Research Network (NIRN).



Healthcare equity, or the assurance of optimal, timely healthcare for all people is an active process, not a simple outcome. To achieve healthcare equity, the field of implementation science needs to embrace a social justice lens and value all individuals equally. Doing so entails explicitly recognizing, understanding, and acting upon historical and current injustices that have disenfranchised historically underserved populations from their right to quality care. This panel gave voice to different groups of individuals who work in the intersection of social justice, equality, and implementation science. We sought to learn together as a field on how to actively decrease the quality gap while maintaining a focus on equity in our work in the implementation science field.
