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.

In this Methods: Mind the Gap webinar, participants learn what the field of dissemination and implementation (D&I) is, why it is important, what it is trying to achieve, and how it is relevant to research and practice. Dr. Fernandez discusses the major components of a D&I study, D&I theories, models and frameworks, and design considerations. She also teaches participants how to tailor their own research to better enhance its value for dissemination and implementation.

In this Methods: Mind the Gap presentation, Dr. Jeffrey Sparks illustrates how epidemiologic and patient-oriented research studies can further the understanding of etiology and outcomes of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a common chronic disease. Different study designs are needed to investigate different types of exposures and outcomes. This presentation discusses studies related to lifestyle factors, genetics, biomarkers, comorbid conditions for RA risk, and outcomes, focusing in particular on how inflammation in the lung may be a nidus for both RA onset and worsened clinical outcomes.

The objective of this FAES Graduate School is to provide a deeper understanding of epidemiologic research methodology that can be used to interpret critically the results of epidemiologic research. This understanding is the result of investigating conceptual models for study designs, disease frequency, measures of association and impact, imprecision, bias, and effect modification. The course emphasizes the interpretation of research, even when the design or execution of the respective research is less than ideal.

On May 23, 2019, NCCOR hosted a Connect & Explore webinar to discuss the findings in a recent publication from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service called “Linking USDA Nutrition Databases to IRI Household-Based and Store-Based Scanner Data.” USDA researchers created a purchase-to-plate “crosswalk”—linking USDA data and household retail scanner data—to measure the overall healthfulness of American’s food-at-home (FAH) purchases. Results show that improvements in the healthfulness of Americans’ FAH purchases are needed to comply with federal dietary guidance. The speaker is Andrea Carlson, PhD, MS,an economist in the Food Markets Branch of the Food Economics Division.
