Implementation of Performance-Based Cognitive Assessments Using Implementation Science Frameworks

Implementation of Performance-Based Cognitive Assessments Using Implementation Science Frameworks


Implementation of standardized performance-based cognitive assessments alongside traditional measures of cognition is considered best-practice in Occupational Therapy (OT). The National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) evidence-based implementation science frameworks were used to achieve systematic and sustainable implementation of four performance-based cognitive assessments: Kettle Test, Executive Function Route-Finding Task (EFRT), Executive Function Performance Test (EFPT) and Multiple Errands Test (MET). NIRN tools were used to analyse systems and drivers, to develop operational definitions of desired practices and outcomes, and to identify how outcomes would be measured. Implementation was piloted with Plan-Do-Study-Act cycles to refine training/coaching methods and supporting materials prior to implementation.

 After taking part in this webinar, participants will have a:

  1. General understanding of Implementation Science
  2. General understanding of National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) Stages of Implementation
  3. Understanding of how 1 and 2 can be used in a clinical setting through a description of an Occupational Therapy project to implement performance-based cognitive assessments in a rehabilitation facility.
