S55 MPH 5541Methods, Metrics and Measures for Dissemination and Implementation Research3.0 Units
Description:Implementation Science: Approaches in Local, Regional and Global ContextsDespite the unequivocal successes of biomedical research over the last generation, the use of evidence-based clinical interventions in routine public health and clinical practice remains far from optimal. Today, Americans receive approximately half of indicated medical care (and much unindicated care as well). As a result, even though the past 30 years have yielded unprecedented gains in clinical and medical sciences, the health of Americans lags behind other industrialized countries. Globally, the proportion of morbidity and mortality due to available (and affordable) but unused clinical interventions is even larger. Dissemination and implementation (D&I) research is an emerging area of scientific inquiry with a growing body of distinctive perspectives and methods that seeks to tackle this gap. This course focuses on approaches of particular or distinctive relevance to implementation research. To start with, given that implementation issues often occur at an organizational, practice, or regional level, knowledge of concepts in multi-stage sampling, attendant design effects, quantification of within- and between-cluster correlation, and cluster-level randomization are crucial. In addition, many emerging concepts in implementation research -- including context, adaptation, strategies, and outcomes -- are now accompanied by advancement in their conceptualization and measurement. This course introduces the foundational methods of measurement development (e.g., latent class analysis, criterion and construct validity) as well as important recent publications in this area (e.g., the Program Sustainability Assessment Tool). The third part of this co urse will focus on use and appraisal of data taken from health systems, including administrative databases and electronic medical records, to assess implementation behaviors and outcomes. Each of these three areas will offer practical knowledge and ski

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
