Dissemination & Implementation Research: An Introductory Workshop for Investigators
Dates: April 29 – 30, 2024
Where: Virtual via Zoom
REgistration opens: friday – march 15, 2024
Admission fees: $500, scholarship opportunities available
According to the National Institutes of Health, closing the gap between research discovery and clinical and community practice is both a complex challenge and an absolute necessity if we are to ensure that all populations benefit from the nation’s investments in scientific discoveries. To that end, Elvin Geng, MD, MPH, a professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the School of Medicine and Director of the Center for Dissemination and Implementation has joined forces with a few Institute Faculty Scholars to help WashU offer a new workshop to stimulate the minds of D&I students from novice to well-versed practitioner.
While new credit-conferring courses are now available for interested investigators, not all have the ability or level of interest to commit to a semester-long course. To meet the needs of a broad audience, we offer this short, two-day, virtual workshop.
Who can attend:
We seek participants at any professional stage, from pre and post-doctoral candidates to junior and more established faculty. We hope to draw from a broad range of content areas. In addition, we would like to draw investigators from earlier translational steps (e.g., bench-to-bedside) that may not traditionally consider implementation science relevant. Registration is limited.
What you’ll learn:
At the end of the two-day course, participants will
- be familiar with the foundational motives for D&I research
- be familiar with key perspectives and methods in analyzing implementation gaps
- be familiar with approaches to creating strategies to overcome those gaps
- be exposed to emerging concepts of context, adaptation, and emerging methods emphasizing external validity

In addition to knowledge of D&I, this course is meant to also link investigators who are otherwise unconnected with each other to build a more connected community engaged in D&I. This community can also provide mutually enforcing professional and content support for each other, to make D&I “stick” over time.
Participants will be provided with an agenda as well as a syllabus, presentation recording and a number of readings before the course in preparation. The live zoom sessions will include engaging discussion.
No credit will be conferred.
