Resource of the Month
The Implementation Network's Resource of the Month for August is the Coalition for Evidence-Based Policy, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization founded in 2001 to increase government effectiveness through the use of rigorous evidence about “ what works.” Vice President David Anderson provides more information about the Coalition here.
The Decision Making Process and the Implementation of Decision AidsJoin us for our next Advanced Topics in Dissemination & Implementation Research hosted by National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Control & Population Sciences Implementation Science (IS) Team.
On Wednesday, July 30th, 2014 from 1:00-2:00 pm EDT, we are pleased to have Dr. Masahito Jimbo join us to discuss his research on decision making and the implementation of decision support aids. Dr. Jimbo will present background on earlier research on the effectiveness of decision aids for cancer screening, as they have the potential to lead to better shared decision-making in patient-clinician decisions. He will also speak to his current research that steps back from effective implementation to examine what factors influence decision making and what the decision making process is.
Current Funding Opportunities
PCORI Offers New Funding Support for Meetings and Events
Do you have ideas for a symposium, workshop, or other event focused on developing and sharing information about patient-centered comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER)? Our Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards program today announced a new funding opportunity to support such initiatives. Eligible organizations may begin applying immediately for these awards, ranging from $50,000 to $250,000. This is the latest addition to our Engagement Awards program, which supports a range of projects that encourage involvement by patients, clinicians, and other healthcare stakeholders in the work we do.As part of AHRQ's PCOR dissemination efforts, this AHRQ Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for Centers of Excellence to identify, classify, track, and compare healthcare delivery systems ranging from integrated delivery systems to Accountable Care Organizations across the U.S. to help improve the speed of adoption and diffusion of CER-recommended practices through systems. - See more at: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-HS-14-011.html#sthash.hRgVkBc9.dpufAs part of AHRQ's PCOR dissemination efforts, this AHRQ Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for Centers of Excellence to identify, classify, track, and compare healthcare delivery systems ranging from integrated delivery systems to Accountable Care Organizations across the U.S. to help improve the speed of adoption and diffusion of CER-recommended practices through systems. - See more at: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-HS-14-011.html#sthash.hRgVkBc9.dpuf
Call for Abstracts
7th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation:
Transforming Health Systems to Optimize Individual and Population Health
December 8-9, 2014 | Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center
The Planning Committee selected the theme of "Transforming Health Systems to Optimize Individual and Population Health" for the 7th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation to reflect the opportunity, excitement, and charge to the field that we have in 2014.
The conference seeks novel research or conceptual papers that address any of the topics included above, with emphasis on empirical, data driven findings for how best to integrate evidence-based interventions within clinical and community settings and/or how to recast the nature or conduct of the research itself to make it more relevant and actionable in those settings.
Abstracts are encouraged for three types of scientific sessions:
- Individual Oral Presentations
- Poster Sessions
Cosponsors:The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) | Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) | Robert Wood Johnson Foundation | Veterans Affairs (VA)
ICBM Satellite Workshop Forum on Dissemination and Implementation Science
Wednesday 20 August 2014, 9am – 4pm
From Research to Reality: Lessons from Dissemination and Implementation Research Across the Globe
Dr. Cynthia Vinson, MPA will join a panel of researchers and policy makers to discuss a growing recognition of the importance of dissemination and implementation research and the significant gaps that remain. These gaps include a lack of case studies and evidence -base from low and middle-income countries, continuing and vexing methodological challenges, especially with study designs and measures, and a lack of research about how to translate evidence into policy and practice. More information.
Annual Meeting of the American College of Epidemiology: Making Epidemiology More Consequential (Silver Spring, Maryland) featuring a Workshop on Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health, September 7 – 9, 2014. Registration now open. Early bird registration deadline August 22nd
This month the Implementation Science Team has invited one of its own team members, Dr. Gila Neta, to share more on the 7th Annual Conference on Dissemination and Implementation on a discussion post on NCI’s Research to Reality Online Community of Practice.
Consumer advocates and medical specialists tell the committee that patients are not much safer today than they were 15 years ago when a landmark study on medical errors spurred calls for reform.

The Forum on Promoting Children's Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health convened its first workshop on Strategies for Scaling Tested and Effective Family-Focused Preventive Interventions to Promote Children's Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health on April 1-2, 2014 in Washington, DC. The workshop featured presentations on and discussion of successes and challenges experienced by developers and implementers of family-focused preventive interventions that have been successfully brought to scale; considerations related to the implementation of preventive programs in settings-such as pediatric practices and schools-that are emerging as important points of intervention; and the role of intermediary organizations in scale-up, among other topics. This document summarizes the workshop.
