Implementation Science is a relatively new field that focuses on discovering strategies to reduce the gap between research and practice. The revised Promoting Action on Research Implementation in Health Services (PARIHS) framework was used to improve implementation of an evidence-based project that was designed to reduce the impact of delirium on hospitalized, older patients. Interventions were based on the core elements of the PARIHS framework: evidence, context, facilitation and successful implementation. Solutions centered on providing adequate and appropriate resources and clarifying roles. Specific recommendations included enhancing training and improving communication.
