Equity-Focused Dissemination and Implementation
Dissemination and implementation science - a rapidly growing field - examines the process by which scientific evidence is implemented in clinical settings and communities. Our team works with researchers to help design and evaluate evidence-based interventions – with a focus on addressing health equity.
We achieve this through genuine community engagement throughout the research process and by leveraging academic-community partnerships throughout upstate New York. We are also developing capacity-building efforts and educational programs to train and empower the workforce.
The UR CTSI’s equity-focused dissemination and implementation (EQ-DI) function promotes and supports collaboration and team science, working with engaged stakeholders, community members and researchers from across the University of Rochester and the region, to accelerate translational science and improve population health.
Does your research proposal qualify as D&I science? Need help formulating your D&I research aims, design, etc.? The UR CTSI’s EQ-DI function offers consultations through our Research Methods Forum and other group-based consultations and function co-leaders are available for consultation.
Request a consultation via the UR CTSI Research Help Desk.
We also offer two funding opportunities: Our pipeline-to-pilot award provides up to $10,000 for EQ-DI research planning activities and our mini-grant provides up to $2,000 to support a wide range of EQ-DI research-related activities that do not require de novo IRB approval.
