ICTR Enrichment Series: Data Science; Tools to Drive Implementation & Dissemination Research Impact
AbstractIt takes 17 years to turn 14% of original research findings into benefit for patients. Promising research results do not automatically or easily translate into programs, interventions, and clinical practices that improve health, resulting in a gap between research and practice – also known as the valleys of death. The science of implementation and dissemination is an emerging, multidisciplinary field that aims to improve the relevance and uptake of research-based knowledge in real-world settings.
DescriptionFROM DATA TO KNOWLEDGE TO ACTION Using the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Knowledge-to-Action framework, Drs. Fadia Shaya and Cynthia Baur illustrate how to think about implementation and dissemination from the beginning of the research process and how implementation and dissemination science can help accelerate effective clinical practice and inform future research. z Center for Health Literacy at University of Maryland College Park, School of Public Health
