Medicine: Mind the Gap Webinar with Dr. Maria E. Fernandez
|Date||04/20/17 3:00pm to 4:00pm|
|Presenter(s)||Dr. Maria E. Fernandez|
Dissemination and implementation (D&I) research seeks to bridge the gap between health sciences research, everyday practice, and population health by building a knowledge base about how health information, interventions, and new clinical practices and policies are communicated and 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 everyday practice settings in order to improve health. Webinar participants will learn what the field of D&I is, why it is important, what it is trying to achieve, and how it is relevant to research and practice. They will learn about the major components of a D&I study, D&I theories, models and frameworks, and design considerations. Participants will also learn how to tailor their own research to better enhance its value for dissemination and implementation.
