Could policy strategies be the missing piece in the implementation science puzzle?
Written by Morgan C. Shields, PhD, assistant professor at the Brown School On September 7th, the Center for Dissemination and Implementation was pleased to host Karen Emmons, PhD, professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, for her talk, The Role of Policy in Implementation Science and Health Equity. While understanding how policy […]

In this blog post, Elvin Geng, MD, reflects on an article that explores unintended harm on the most vulnerable populations.
Bringing a Health Equity Lens to Implementation Science Frameworks
Several Institute Faculty Scholars who are experts in Implementation Science summarize their experience at the AcademyHealth Annual Conference.
Modeling tool informs local epidemiological projections
The end of shelter-in-place policies in Missouri has led to a new wave of uncertainty about the future: Will the epidemic get worse? If so, how quickly? And if it gets worse, how quickly will we know and how bad will it get? LEMMA is a simple compartmental model using an Approximately Bayesian Computation approach […]
Washington University shows D&I pride at international conference
If you were on Twitter during the week of September 13-14, you must have seen the handles #impsci and #SIRC2019 heavily trading, especially in Seattle. That’s because a number of us were attending the 5th Biannual Society for Implementation Research Collaboration (SIRC), hosted at the University of Washington. SIRC’s mission is to facilitate the communication […]
More than just the endgame: The role of implementation science for early-stage innovations in behavioral health
Written by Alex Ramsey, instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at the School of Medicine Implementation science has generally been viewed as the final step in the research translation process and only in the context of long-standing and well-validated interventions. There is reason to believe, however, that we should be considering implementation issues earlier in the […]
What we don’t know about dissemination and implementation science
In one decade, implementation science has experienced an “explosion” of progress in both quality and quantity; Enola Proctor explores 5 things we still don’t know.
Implementation science and health disparities: The quality gap is still here
Racial and ethnic minorities in the United States continue to face serious mental health care disparities, receiving lower quality care and completing treatment less often than their non-Hispanic white counterparts. (1,2) Mental health care disparities are complex, in large part because factors that contribute to disparities occur at a variety of levels and include individuals, families, […]
Resources for dissemination & implementation science
Here are some of our favorite resources for Dissemination & Implementation (D&I) Science from the Institute’s Center for Dissemination & Implementation. We hope you’ll find them helpful. VA Quality Enhancement Research Initiative Implementation Guide The VA Quality Enhancement Research Initiative Implementation Guide is a multi-purpose trail map toward formative evaluation, methods, applying theory, diagnosing gaps, […]
Scaling up cancer prevention
Vice-President Biden has recently called for renewed efforts to address the burden and growing impact of cancer in the US and worldwide. Over 12 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed worldwide in 2012. Refining strategies to implement and sustain cancer prevention interventions that are established as effective to reduce cancer incidence offers the best […]
Inherent challenges to conducting D&I research in aging
It is hard to imagine a field of study that would not benefit from incorporating dissemination and implementation (D&I) into its strategic plan and foci. Many fields such as medicine and public health have already done so and have furthered not only their own fields but have also improved the science of D&I. However, despite […]
Training those “lost in translation”
Written by Ross C. Brownson, PhD, inaugural Steven H. and Susan U. Lipstein Distinguished Professor of Public Health at the Brown School; and Maggie Padek Kalman, MPH, MSW, project coordinator in the Prevention Research Center at the Brown School “Knowledge is like fine wine. The researcher brews it, the scientific paper bottles it, the peer review […]
Video explains: “What is D&I?”
Written by April Houston, MSW/MPH, graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis Our new video explains the emerging field of dissemination and implementation, aka D&I: what it is, and why it’s so important.
Bench to implementation in the real world
Our Global Health Center contacted speakers from it’s 2015 Global Health and Infectious Disease Conference to gain their perspectives on the event’s theme of taking research from bench to implementation. We spoke with: Daniel Colley, PhD, Professor, University of Georgia and Director, Center for Tropical and Emerging Infectious Diseases Helen Fletcher, PhD, Senior Lecturer at […]
