Our objective is to promote a national dialogue among researchers, private and public stakeholders about using implementation science to foster appropriate use of clinical preventive services.
Registration is required to participate in any or all of these opportunities. Please click here for the registration form. A staff memeber will be in contact with you about next steps.
The Steps of Engagement
There will be 3 phases to the research agenda-setting process:
1. Identifying gaps. Pre-conference need-gap survey
2. Developing an agenda. In-person conference with national implementation experts in Denver, CO
on May 28-29, 2015
3. Refining the agenda. Peer review via webinars and online crowdsourcing
Setting the Stage
Clinical preventive care works only if the right people get the right care at the right time. Some preventive services are not used enough, while others are over-used and lead to increased potential harm to certain patients. Yet major disparities also exist across the expanse of recommended preventive services, creating sizable inequities in disease outcomes among those most vulnerable.
Understanding how best to implement evidence-based preventive care and promotional interventions in primary care is paramount. To achieve this, it is essential to understand the behavior of healthcare professionals, patients and other stakeholders in the implementation process and the barriers and facilitators of delivering these services, when recommended (and when not) in real-world settings. Thus, implementation science research is necessary to inform a learning healthcare system. The research field has not had adequate dialogue concerning knowledge gaps, research barriers and methodology issues unique to implementation of clinical preventive services. Dialogue is necessary to define a national research agenda for studying (and ultimately impacting) the over-, under-, and inequitable use of these services.
The process will include online as well as in-person participation that will culminate in the creation and dissemination of a national agenda consensus statement to key stakeholder.
