The concepts learned while pursuing this certificate will assist researchers and practitioners in translating and testing research advances in public health and healthcare delivery to effective and efficient interventions in multiple settings.

Learn how to:

  • Describe the foundations of dissemination and implementation (D&I) science
  • Explain the D&I theories and frameworks
  • Develop and tailor strategies for implementation and dissemination
  • Engage in community and stakeholder based implementation and dissemination research
  • Design, analyze, measure, and evaluate the different outcomes
  • Gain knowledge to adapt health interventions to improve fit in new settings.

Dissemination and Implementation Research Training

Dissemination and implementation research bridges the gap between health sciences research, everyday practice and population health by understanding how health information, interventions, and new clinical practices and policies are implemented in public health and health care settings. It is focused on understanding and accelerating the integration of research findings and research-based innovations into practice settings in order to improve health. This workshop is appropriate for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty interested in implementation science.
