WEBINAR – Applying Implementation Science to Clinical Trial Improvement – Dr Kristian Stensland

This webinar explored the adaptation and application of implementation science to the design, evaluation, and implementation of clinical trials. In brief, we discussed the consideration of clinical trials as evidence-based practices with substantial benefits to individuals and society, but suffering from poor implementation. We considered the adaptation of implementation science frameworks to identify barriers and facilitators to trial conduct, including enrollment, the use of implementation outcomes in the clinical trials context, the targeting of tailored interventions to improve trial conduct, and early experiences in the pragmatic application of these frameworks and conceptual models.

Dr. Kristian Stensland is an Assistant Professor of Urology at the University of Michigan. His research interests are primarily in improving the conduct, efficiency, and equity of clinical trials through informatics, infrastructure, and implementation science. His clinical work as a urologic surgeon focuses on care for people with urologic cancers. Kristian completed a fellowship in urology oncology and health services research at the University of Michigan in 2023 after finishing his urologic surgical residency at Lahey Clinic in Boston, Massachusetts. He completed a Master of Public Health at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, and a Master of Science in Health Infrastructures and Learning Systems focused on implementation science at the University of Michigan. His work has been funded by the US National Institutes of Health. Aside from his research and clinical interests, Kristian is a proud dad, an avid runner, and enthusiastic (American) football fan.
