2018 Training Institute for Dissemination & Implementation Research in Health-August 13-December 7

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. The Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) in coordination with a number of NIH Institutes and Centers and the VA, are hosting this online training institute to provide participants with a thorough grounding in conducting D&I research in health across all areas of health and health care.
