Enhancing Capacity and Promoting Dissemination & Implementation (D&I) Best Practices

The IIMS Community Engagement Team is committed to enhancing capacity and promoting best D&I research practices relevant to our partners and region. Our collaborations assemble cross-disciplinary expertise to solve vexing problems. Our goal is to expand productive partnerships between front-line practitioners who understand their workflows and practical constraints and experienced D&I researchers who can offer cutting-edge frameworks, approaches, and evaluation strategies.

What is D&I Research?

Dissemination Research: The scientific study of targeted distribution of information and intervention materials to a specific public health or clinical practice audience. The intent is to understand how best to communicate and sustain knowledge and the associated evidence-based interventions.

Implementation Research: The scientific study of the use of strategies to adopt and integrate evidence-based health interventions into clinical and community settings to improve care, patient outcomes, and population health.
