Dr. Geoffrey Curran’s presentation addresses the topic of hybrid effectiveness-implementation studies, a set of approaches to simultaneously studying the effectiveness of health interventions and the strategies to implement them in community and clinical practice settings. His presentation unpacks the rationale for these designs, a typology of designs based on the state of science for a given intervention, and provides examples of studies utilizing these important methods.
Dr. Diez Roux is internationally known for her research on the social determinants of population health and the study of how neighborhoods affect health. Her work on neighborhood health effects has been highly influential in the policy debate on population health and its determinants. Her research areas include social determinants and health disparities, environmental health, urban health, psychosocial factors in health, cardiovascular disease epidemiology, and the use of multilevel methods.
Applying Models and Frameworks to Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Research: An Overview & Analysis
Part of a joint presentation, Dr. Rachel Tabak presents a review which uses snowball sampling to develop an inventory of models, synthesizes this information, and provide guidance on how to select a model. Dr. Ted Albert Skolarus discusses an examination of citation frequency and impact of D&I models using citation analysis.
Approaches to Evidence Synthesis in Systematic Reviews of Public Health Interventions: Methods and Experiences of the Community Preventive Services Task Force
In this Methods: Mind the Gap webinar, Dr. David Hopkins discuses the conceptual decisions to emphasize a broad consideration of available evidence for reviews of public health interventions; the methods required to ensure a balanced assessment of mixed bodies of evidence; and factors weighed by the CPSTF in translating evidence into conclusions on effectiveness and recommendations regarding use.
Balancing Fidelity & Adaptation: If We Want More Evidence-Based Practice, We Need More Practice-Based Evidence
In this webinar, Drs. Larry Green and Rachel Gold deliver a joint presentation on fidelity and adaptation. Fidelity and adaptation relate to the manner in which the evidence from a research study is brought to practice. There is fidelity if the program is implemented in a way that is very similar to how it was originally designed, and there is adaptation when there are changes made to the process and content of the program to fit to a particular context. In most cases, contextual factors can influence the ability to maintain fidelity as well as the need for adaptation.
A report that provides guidance to NIH investigators on how to rigorously develop and evaluate mixed methods research applications.
This archive provides a collection of webinars on methodology. The topics include HIV prevention, implementation methods, personalized medicine, complexity, and longitudinal data. In 2017, the Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) provided co-funding to the Center for Prevention Implementation Methodology to help create this archive.
During this webinar, Dr. Niven provides an overview of work on de-implementation while Dr. Norton provides cancer specific examples and insights. The session includes approximately 25 minutes of comments from the speaker and 35 minutes for engaged discussion and Q&A with the audience.
In this introductory FAES Graduate School class, students learn the foundations of health economics and econometric modeling and apply them to the evaluation of biomedical research and public health programs.
This webinar explores the topic of community and stakeholder engagement, partnership, and issues of measurement. Drs. Nina Wallerstein and Bonnie Duran provide an overview of their research in community-based participatory research (CBPR), in relevance to implementation science, and the measures they used to assess engagement and CBPR in action.
During this webinar, Drs. Proctor and Brownson discuss characteristics of high-impact implementation science as well as efforts to build capacity of the field through D&I research training. They present their take on the potential of the field, current limitations, and how efforts to build capacity can lead to the next set of advances.
In his webinar, Dr. Powell describes the development and refinement of a compilation of implementation strategies, emphasizes the importance of carefully specifying and reporting implementation strategies to ensure replicability, and discusses ongoing work focusing on the development of more effective ways of tailoring implementation strategies to specific contexts.
Implementation Science and Modelling Strategies: Experiences from NCI’s Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET)
Dr. David Chambers is joined by Dr. Eric ‘Rocky’ Feuer, Dr. Amy Trentham-Dietz, and Dr. Chin Hur for a brief overview of the CISNET consortium, and Drs. Trentham-Dietz and Hur will present case examples of how their cancer site modeling work addresses a range of implementation science topics, including de-implementation.
These modules are designed to complement the Measures Registry and Measures Registry User Guides and assist researchers and practitioners with choosing the best measures across the four domains of the Measures Registry: individual diet, food environment, individual physical activity and physical activity environment.
In this webinar, Dr. Larry Palinkas introduces the use of mixed method designs in research on three interrelated facets of evidence-based practices implementation: provider social networks, use of research evidence, and cultural exchange between researchers and practitioners. Dr. Palinkas explains the multiple strategies through which qualitative and quantitative research methods can converge, specifically highlighting their use within three funded research studies of implementation.
In collaboration with other academic institutions, professional organizations, and funding agencies, the Implementation Science team coordinates and supports several training and educational activities, including a monthly webinar series, training programs, and an annual conference.
In this presentation, Dr. Gortmaker presents the latest findings from the Childhood Obesity Intervention Cost-Effectiveness Study (CHOICES) project. CHOICES is a collaborative modeling effort designed to evaluate the effectiveness, costs, and reach of interventions to reduce childhood obesity in the United States.
In this Methods: Mind the Gap webinar, Dr. Jacob Bor reviews the theory behind regression discontinuity designs and their implementation, with a focus on examples in public health research.
Researching the Impossible: The Utility of Agent-Based Models for Advancing Public Health Policy and Implementation Science
Dr. Doug Luke provides a general overview of agent-based modeling (ABM) methods, and then discusses in more detail the utility of these methods for studying the design and implementation of new policies and practices related to chronic diseases, including obesity and tobacco control. The specific advantages of ABMs for dissemination and implementation science are also highlighted.
Scale-Up of Evidence-Based Interventions: The Challenges of Moving From Local to Regional to National to Global
During this webinar, Drs. Riley and Willis focus on scale-up of effective interventions both conceptually and empirically. They have recently contributed a chapter on scale-up to an edited volume focusing on Advancing Implementation Science in Cancer Control. The session includes approximately 25 minutes of comments from the speakers and 35 minutes for engaged discussion and Q&A with the audience.
