May 4, 2022
Click here to view the webinar!

This third webinar hosted by the SIRC Practitioner Network of Expertise (PNoE)’s Implementation Infrastructure Initiative (I3) focused on examples of national implementation infrastructure provided through the Technology Transfer Center Network funded by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), which is made-up of national and regional centers from the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC), Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC), and Prevention Technology Transfer Center (PTTC) networks. Speakers included, Laurie Krom & Holly Hagle (Co-Directors of the ATTC & PTTC Network Coordinating Office), Heather Gotham (Director of the MHTTC Network Coordinating Office), and Marjean Nielsen (Co-Chair of the Implementation Science Working Group and Co-Director of the Mountain Plains PTTC).

 

Rapid Learning with Rigorous Methods: The Role of Human-Centered Design (HCD) in Implementation Research
March 30, 2022
Link coming soon!

This webinar was a panel discussion on utilizing HCD (also referred to as user-centered design) in implementation research. Topics included (i) rapid and practical applications of HCD, (ii) feasibility and costs of incorporating HCD, and (iii) regulatory considerations in using HCD. This webinar was hosted by Bo Kim, PhD (Chair of New Investigator Network of Expertise, SIRC) and included Kelli Scott, PhD (Brown University School of Public Health), Andrea Graham, PhD (Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine), and Aaron Lyon, PhD (University of Washington) as panelists.

SIRC Office Hour – Meet the Editors of Implementation Research and Practice
October 22, 2020
Click here to view the webinar!

Implementation Research and Practice (https://journals.sagepub.com/home/IRP) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access, online-only journal providing rapid publication of interdisciplinary research that advances the implementation in diverse contexts of effective approaches to assess, prevent, and treat mental health, substance use, or other addictive behaviors, in the general population or among those at-risk or suffering from these disorders. This journal is published on behalf of the Society for Implementation Research Collaboration (SIRC).

This webinar gave attendees the opportunity to learn more about Implementation Research and Practice. Dr. Sapana Patel (Chair of SIRC’s Practitioner Network of Expertise) moderated the webinar and was joined by the Co-Editors-in-Chief of Implementation Research and Practice, Dr. Cara Lewis and Dr. Sonja Schoenwald. Drs. Lewis and Schoenwald provided an overview of the journal, elaborated on its scope, and shared tips to improve the chance of acceptance.

 

SIRC Office Hour – Rapid Implementation Research into the COVID-19 Emergency with Dr. John Øvretveit
September 22, 2020
Click here to view the webinar!

Dr. John Øvretveit discussed work described in his recent article published in the Society for Implementation Research Collaboration’s new journal, Implementation Research and Practice (IRP). The webinar was moderated by Dr. Sonja Schoenwald, Co-Editor-in-Chief of IRP. Dr. Øvretveit described a rapid implementation research project with the Stockholm health care system to assist the system to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. It uses this example to illustrate some ways in which implementation research and knowledge can contribute to improving service responses to the pandemic and its consequences as these evolve over the coming months. A sub-specialty of rapid implementation science was proposed to provide practical assistance and as one way to develop implementation research. The full text of his article can be found here: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/2633489520949151

 

SIRC Office Hours with Dr. Erum Nadeem
Thursday, June 13th, 2019
Click here to view the webinar!

Learning collaboratives (LCs) are used widely to promote implementation of evidence-based practices. However, there has been limited research on the effectiveness of LCs and models vary widely in their structure, focus and components. Dr. Nadeem will discuss a pilot study on a theory-based LC model, which aimed to develop and field test the model to augment a state-led, evidence-based training program for clinicians providing mental health services to children. LC sites were contrasted with matched comparison sites that participated in the clinical training program alone. Results will be discussed. There will then be plenty of time for SIRC members to ask practical questions about how to apply LCs in their own current and future work.

In advance of the office hours, please review this literature review on LCs in mental health care –https://ps.psychiatryonline.org/doi/full/10.1176/appi.ps.201300229 – and be prepared to ask questions! In the registration survey, you’ll have the opportunity to list questions you have, and there will also be time for additional questions during the office hour.

 

SIRC Office Hours with Dr. Larry Palinkas
Thursday, April 4th, 2019
Click here to view the webinar!

Larry Palinkas held our first SIRC Office Hours on April 4 at 2 EST/11PST. Pragmatic clinical trials of mental health services are increasingly being developed to establish comparative effectiveness, influence sustainable implementation, and address real world policy decisions. However, use of time and resource intensive qualitative methods in pragmatic trials may be inconsistent with the aims of efficiency and cost minimization. Dr. Palinkas discussed a qualitative method known as Rapid Assessment Procedure-Informed Clinical Ethnography (RAPICE) that combines the techniques of Rapid Assessment Procedures with clinical ethnography.

 

“Setting the Stages for Understanding Mechanisms of Implementation”
Friday, March 22nd, 2019

Dr. David Chambers, Deputy Director for Implementation Science in the Office of the Director in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), began this webinar with a historical overview of the field of implementation science, setting the stage for why we are now poised to explore implementation mechanisms. Presenters then defined implementation mechanisms and why they matter from a practical and scientific perspective. Drs. Cara Lewis and Nate Williams presented results from two systematic reviews of implementation mechanisms, which reveal what we already know about implementation mechanisms and critical next steps for the field. This webinar was the first activity toward developing a research agenda for studying implementation mechanisms, which is the goal of SIRC’s R13 entitled,“Advancing Mechanisms of Implementation to Accelerate Sustainable Evidence-Based Practice Integration”.
