Sustainability is the process of managing and supporting the evolution of an intervention within a changing context

addressing the paradox of sustainment  amid ongoing change

In 2018 the UK Implementation Society began a new series of activities covering a wide range of topics in implementation and improvement science and practice.  Seminars in York and London took place and more are in the planning stages.


We aim to hold the activities in different locations around the country: please contact us if you can offer a venue and would like to host a UK-IS activity at your institution.


Members will be notified by email or through the bulletin about events as soon as they are finalised. Follow us on Twitter as well @UK_ImpNet

Non-members who wish to attend UK-IS events are often able to do so: see the booking form for that event or contact for details and charges.
