Despite the demonstrable benefits of many new medical discoveries, there has been a gap in translating research breakthroughs into practice.
Dissemination and implementation science can solve the complex challenge of bringing health innovations to practice through the development of evidence-based strategies that facilitate quality improvement, organizational change within health systems, and policy implementation
In a recent FOA, the National Institutes of Health provided the following definitions of dissemination and implementation.
The Improvement Science Research Network states that the “overriding goal of improvement science is to ensure that quality improvement efforts are based as much on evidence as the best practices they seek to implement.”1 Simply put, “strategies for implementing evidence-based quality improvement need an evidence base of their own.”21Shojania KG, Grimshaw JM. Evidence-Based quality improvement: the state of the science. Health Aff (Millwood) 2005; 24(1): 138-50.
