          Abstract

          An estimated 17-year lag exists between evidence generation and its integration into routine clinical care. The field of implementation science has emerged to close this gap by applying rigorous methods to systematically study the obstacles and facilitators of the uptake of evidence-based practices. However, implementation science has not gained wide traction in dermatology. In this narrative review, we use literature and expert input to introduce implementation science and key frameworks for implementing interventions and evaluating their uptake. We then highlight opportunities for dermatology-specific interventions at the patient-, provider-, system-, and population-levels, and advocate for the field’s expansion into dermatology.
