Applications Open for 2019 Proposal Development Bootcamp

The Center for Dissemination & Implementation at the Institute for Public Health is sponsoring its third annual “Next Steps in Public Health: Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Proposal Development Bootcamp” on Feb. 27, 2018 from 8 am to 4 pm.

What is the D&I Proposal Development Bootcamp? An all-day, one-time, intensive day of consultations.

Who can participate and how? Anyone interested in advancing a D&I grant proposal for external submission, from idea to proposal draft. Apply by submitting a concept paper or proposal draft. Each PI may bring 2-3 team members; please do bring a dedicated note-taker.

Applications are being accepted now through January 7th at 5 pm.

When & where? Wed., Feb. 27th, 2019, 8am to 4pm Taylor Ave. Building, Medical Campus

Proposals should fall within the scope of research reflected in the following PARs or other related program announcements: PAR-18-007, 16-237, 18-017): R01 Research Project Grant; R03 Small Grant Program; R21 Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Award.

Priority topics for Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) research include: Identify or test strategies for successful implementation of guidelines/evidence-based programs; improve methods for D&I research (outcomes, measures and analyses); identify contextual factors associated with dissemination or implementation success, especially multi-level environments for D&I; “de-adoption” or reduction of non-evidence based interventions; examine scale up, sustainability, or spread of effective interventions; understand resources or costs for implementation; or, incorporate stakeholder relevant outcomes of research (including relevant outcomes for patients, families, providers, administrators and policymakers). By day’s end, each proposal will be closer to submission.

Examples of Consultation Topics

1) Specific-Aims: how to write them for D&I
2) Measurement of D&I concepts
3) Frameworks, theories, and models: how to choose?
4) Quantitative & Qualitative methods
5) Organizational issues, leadership, phase models, sustainment
6) Research design for D&I research, including hybrid designs that also test for intervention effectiveness
7) Social network analysis methods
8) Finding funding for D&I research
