Taking Science to the Trenches: Dissemination & Implementation Research

Webinar Description

Traditional science often fails to make a meaningful impact in the real world. The emerging field of Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Science tries to remedy that by bringing research to the trenches. If you are an administrator or clinician who wants to conduct program evaluation in a way that has impact beyond your own clinic, or if you are an academic who wants to make your findings impact the “endpoint,” this webinar is for you!

Drs. Jodi Polaha and Tina Studts recently attended the Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (TIDIRH), sponsored by NIH, OBSSR, NCI, NIMH, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and Washington University in St. Louis. Their presentation will provide an overview of the cutting-edge field of D&I research in the context of collaborative family healthcare. In addition, they will share insights about the methods and approaches used in D&I research, the current momentum and opportunities in D&I research, and resources available from TIDIRH.

This webinar is presented by the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association and the Office of Integrated Healthcare Research and Policy in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The webinar series is made possible with funding from the California Mental Health Services Authority Integrated Behavioral Health Project in partnership with the AHRQ Academy for Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care and the Advancing Care Together project of UC-Denver Dept. of Family Medicine.
