Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (TIDIRH) 2018
We are no longer accepting applications for TIDIRH 2018, but more information about the program can be found here.
One of the most critical issues impeding improvements in public health today is the enormous gap between what we know can optimize health and health care and what actually gets implemented in everyday practice. The science of dissemination and implementation (D&I) seeks to address this gap by understanding how best to ensure that evidence-based strategies to improve health and prevent disease are effectively delivered in clinical and public health practice.
In 2018, the institute will utilize a combination of a 4-month online course (six webinar sessions with related assignments) between mid-August and November, and a 2-day in-person training that will be held December 6th and 7th, 2018, in Bethesda, MD. Faculty and guest lecturers will consist of leading experts (practitioners and teachers) in theory, implementation, and evaluation approaches to D&I; creating partnerships and multilevel, transdisciplinary research teams; research design, methods, and analyses appropriate for D&I investigations; and conducting research at different and multiple levels of intervention (e.g., clinical, community, policy).
The training is open to researchers with interests in studying D&I across health care, public health, and community settings.
