Dissemination and Implementation
Health scientists have successfully developed and tested a plethora of clinical and community interventions demonstrated to treat and prevent medical and behavioral illnesses. However, as leaders in research and clinical practice have noted, there is still an enormous gap between what we know can maximize the quality of health care and what is currently being delivered in practice and community settings. More present than ever within the research community is the belief that to optimize public health we must not only understand how to create the best interventions, but how to best ensure that they are effectively delivered within clinical and community practice. This is the focus of dissemination and implementation research, and building this knowledge base is imperative to get the best return on decades of investment in biomedical and behavioral research.
