Resource of the Month

  • The "Resource of the Month" section of the Implementation Network is meant to highlight a resource--a person, organization, or specific tool--that is contributing to the field of Implementation Science.  In promoting different resources we hope to facilitate the growth of the field and improve access to and awareness of different resources.

    The Implementation Network's Resource of the Month for April is Healthcare: The Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation. Dr. Sachin H. Jain and Dr. Amol S. Navathe, the Editors-in-Chief of Healthcare: The Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation, have been kind enough to provide us with a brief description of the Journal, including what it is and its relationship to implementation science.

Job Opportunities

  • The National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Dissemination and Training (D & T) Division in Menlo Park, California, has two openings for a Clinical Psychologist/Researcher.

    The National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Dissemination and Training (D & T) Division, focuses on implementation research, and education and training related to advanc­ing the clinical care and social welfare of America's Veterans and others who have experi­enced trauma, or those who suffer from PTSD and stress-related disorders. We are also in­vested in understanding how to influence health care systems and policy, create products, and use technology to provide the best care for Veterans. The individuals selected for this po­sition will step into an environment defined by progressive thinking and state-of-the-art appli­cation of science related to the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of PTSD.
    The implementation science researcher/clinical psychologist is expected to be involved in national dissemination, implementation, evaluation and training initiatives, and in the development of content for and assessment of in-person trainings, online trainings, websites and the use of other technologies that support providers and Veterans.
    There are two positions currently available on USA Jobs. The positions are identical except that one is permanent and one is term; the intention is that more established clinicians would likely apply for the permanent position, but all applicants are welcome to apply to either or both.

    Positions are currently open and will remain open until April 7, 2014.

    To apply:
    Permanent position: GetJob/ ViewDetails/363126100

    Term position: GetJob/ ViewDetails/363130000


Call for Papers

  • AJPH Call for Papers: Advances in Public Health Services & Systems Research

    Manuscripts accepted through May 15, 2014.

    The American Journal of Public Health (AJPH), in collaboration with the Robert Wood Foundation and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), intends to publish a supplement issue on the topic of Advances in Public Health Services and Systems Research (PHSSR). Original papers from empirical research studies are invited that offer new knowledge about ways of improving the organization, financing, and delivery of public health strategies within the United States—a field of inquiry known as PHSSR. Studies about the health and economic consequences of organizational strategies, funding mechanisms, workforce models, policy/legal approaches, and health IT applications are encouraged. Papers that apply innovative methodologies for measuring public health strategies and estimating impact are also desired. Papers should have a strong theoretical underpinning and a primary focus on population-level strategies, avoiding a narrow focus on medical care delivery and financing issues. Empirical Research Papers and Briefs are encouraged.

    Potential authors should visit the AJPH website to review the Instructions for Authors and specific guidelines for the various types of manuscripts.
