Background: The scale-up of evidence-based innovations is required to reduce waste in health and social services (HSS) and health inequities while improving the health of populations. However, scaling up often tends to be a top-down process initiated by policy-makers, and the values and perspectives of the intended beneficiaries are forgotten. In this research, we sought to develop guidance for meaningful and equitable engage multiple stakeholders in the science and practice of scaling up in HSS. Methods: We will perform a multimethod research that will be grounded in the integrated knowledge translation (KT) approach. This approach will be guided by a multidisciplinary steering committee using the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Knowledge Model of KT. Discussion: Our finding will advance our understanding of how to meaningfully and equitably engage patients, the public, and other stakeholders in scaling-up initiatives in HSS. Funding: Financial support for this research was provided entirely by a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Catalyst Grant (#PAO-169411) and a CIHR Foundation Grant (#FDN-159931).
