Offered by the Center for Dissemination and Implementation at the Institute for Public Health, RAD funding boosts research projects in multiple ways.
De-implementation is a process studied in a broad array of disciplines, yet implementation science has thus far been limited in the integration of learnings from other fields. A study led by Callie Walsh-Bailey that was published in Implementation Science offers an overview of frameworks and models that implementation researchers and practitioners can use to inform their […]
Byron Powell, PhD looks forward to his new role as Associate Director for the Center for Dissemination and Implementation at the Institute for Public Health. We caught up with Powell and asked about his goals for the center and how he plans to lead the new Methods and Metascience Initiative.

In Fall of 2022, a new course will be available through the Washington University School of Medicine Master of Population Health Sciences (MPHS) degree program: Introduction to Health Disparities and the Structural and Social Determinants of Health.
A collaborative group from Washington University have launched the Infectious Disease Dissemination and Implementation Science (IDDI) Initiative. Led by Virginia McKay, research assistant professor at the Brown School, the initiative is designed to cultivate local and applied research related to the uptake and implementation of evidence-based innovations, practices, procedures or policies that reduce the spread […]
An editorial commentary, co-authored by Drs. Enola Proctor and Elvin Geng, was recently published in the journal Science; it makes recommendations about how adding a “new lane” of implementation science can improve the way we manage crisis’ like COVID-19 moving forward.
We know that the U.S. has been successful in vaccinating those who want the shot however, as we continue to hear about vaccine hesitancy or outright opposition, WashU dissemination and implementation researchers have conducted a study to get to the root of public preference.
Learn to define racism and anti-racism and how an anti-racism approach can refine implementation science’s contributions to health equity research from Derek Griffith, PhD, in this presentation he gave as part of the Center for Dissemination & Implementation’s 2021 Proposal Development Bootcamp.
St. Louis Magazine features the research of Washington University D&I researchers Dr. Rupa Patel and Dr. Alex Ramsey and their quest to understand: How can we use what we already know to make people healthier?
Using an implementation science approach to guide a multi-level program adaptation, Housten’s team is adapting and evaluating the coordinated care model, Ending Metastatic Breast Cancer for Everyone (EMBRACE), from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, to the St. Louis region.
The Center for Dissemination & Implementation at the Institute for Public Health has awarded a pilot grant to fund research aimed at increasing COVID-19 vaccinations among people with mental health and substance use disorders.
The newly NIH-funded Center for Perioperative Mental Health at Washington University has incorporating D&I-science into its proposed approaches. The principal investigators, Drs. Eric Lenze and Michael Avidan and a transdisciplinary team recently opened the new WashU center, the first-ever to focus on urgent mental health issues-such as depression-associated with older adults in the perioperative period.
Moving scientific research results into public health and patient care more quickly could have a significant impact on health equity, finds a new paper from researchers at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis.
At the 13th AcademyHealth Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation, a team of Washington University D&I scientists led a workshop about equity and implementation science frameworks. Amongst other things, they shared that it is important for implementation scientists to partner with equity and disparities researchers earlier in the research continuum.
Almost every health official, physician or researcher you speak with will agree: COVID-19 testing among every population is essential for informing virus detection, self-isolation, and prevention of onward transmission. Racial disparities related to the COVID-19 epidemic and the associated public health response continue to be discussed, but need further study to understand the modifiable driver […]
The Center for Community Health Partnership and Research and the Center for Dissemination and Implementation, both at the Institute for Public Health, have awarded seed funding for two public health-related projects. The projects focus on health care for older adults and for those with prostate cancer, respectively. Through its Pitch Partners² funding mechanism, the Center for Community Health Partnership […]
