A two-day dissemination and implementation science workshop set for Aug. 15-16 at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha aims to help scientists develop and refine ideas for grant proposals related to T3 and T4 dissemination and implementation research. Registration is due Aug. 8.

The workshop will focus on defining and specifying implementation strategies, mapping strategies to outcomes and identifying mechanisms of change for different dissemination and implementation science outcomes. The program also will address the cost effectiveness of implementation strategies related to the adoption of evidence-based approaches and their eventual impact.

Speakers and facilitators include Byron Powell, Washington University in St. Louis; Samantha Harden and Wen You, Virginia Tech; and Jennie Hill and Paul Estabrooks, UNMC College of Public Health.

The workshop is at the UNMC Maurer Center for Public Health, Room 3013. Sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. both days. The first day ends at 4 p.m.; the second at 12:30 p.m. The workshop fee is $150.

The workshop is sponsored by the Great Plains IDeA-CTR, a National Institutes of Health-funded program to support clinical and translational research; the Center for Patient, Family, and Community Engagement in Chronic Care Management at UNMC; and the UNMC College of Public Health’s Department of Health Promotion.
