SIRC is a society that brings together researchers and stakeholders committed to the rigorous evaluation of implementation of evidence based psychosocial interventions. SIRC conferences occur biennially. Our next conference will be held in Seattle on September 25 & 26, 2015 centered around the theme of “Advancing Efficient Methodologies through Community Partnerships and Team Science”. New this conference will be a set of pre-conference workshops and panels on September 24th; topics will be announced soon. Also on the 24th will be the Implementation Research Development Workshop for our Network of Expertise (formerly Strategic Planning Group) members, click here for more details. Registration will open for all conference-related activities in early March, 2015. Be sure to become a SIRC member (see below) and you will be added to our listserv for important announcements.
We invite you to become a SIRC member through a 5-minute free website registration: Become a SIRC member. SIRC members gain access to (1) a repository of D&I instruments, (2) a D&I resource library (under development), listserv updates, and a searchable membership database (coming soon!).
If you have any questions about our SIRC webpage or the conferences, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship under the direction of Assistant Professor Dr. Cara Lewisin the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences atIndiana University, Bloomington Campus. This position is made possible through NIMH funding of 2 D&I-focused R01s (2nd is contingent upon funding availability): (1) Standardized vs. Tailored Implementation of Measurement Based Care for Depression and (2) Advancing Implementation Science through Measure Development and Evaluation. The postdoctoral research associate will be involved in all aspects of the R01 research processes and in the Society for Implementation Research Collaboration. Strong applicants will have a PhD in psychology, experience and demonstrated effectiveness in implementation research, experience working in the context of an academic-community partnership, knowledge of measure development processes, experience serving as project lead or coordinator on federally funded projects, and excellent time management, organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills.
Interested applicants should submit (1) a maximum 2-page statement of interest, (2) updated curriculum vitae, (3) one pre- or reprint you feel would help to demonstrate your research proficiency, and (4) three professional references to Dr. Cara Lewis (firstname.lastname@example.org). Application review will begin April 1, 2015 and continue until the position is filled. This is a 100% FTE position. The stipend and benefits are competitive. This position is expected to begin summer 2015. The initial appointment will be for 1 year, but a multi-year appointment is possible, and desirable, with renewals. Click here for more information.
The 3rd biennial NIMH-funded SIRC conference
“Advancing Efficient Methodologies through Community Partnerships and Team Science”
September 25-26, 2015
The goal of this conference is to promote Efficiency and Speed – the use of prudent and swift methods to study dissemination and implementation to make findings applicable in a timely manner and limit the burden placed on administrators, staff, and providers (Glasgow et al., 2012).
As is commonly observed and cleverly depicted in the sign above, it is challenging to accomplish anything in a way that is both efficient and preserves quality. Implementation research is no exception. We are looking forward to highlighting implementation projects and studies that reflect the sign above: good, cheap, and fast. Ideally, our implementation and research methods would achieve all three principles – but two out of three’s not bad…
Priority will be given to submissions that address this overall conference theme. Submissions on empirical studies with data already collected will be given priority over those with data collection in progress or pending. Presentations on conceptual models of implementation are welcomed, particularly if they have been tested and offer an innovative and efficient approach to implementation. Submissions addressing the following topics are encouraged, but this list is not meant to be exhaustive.
Key Efficiency Issues:
- Managing fidelity and supervision for multiple EBPs in one setting
- Models/methods for reducing staff turnover
- Training efficiency: How low can you go? Or how can you do it differently to keep the bar high?
- Looking beyond training – feasible models and methods that implement and sustain EBPs for the long term
- Community-led evaluations (engaging stakeholders to reduce burden and increase relevance)
- Matching models of implementation to system needs and capacities
Using Available and Affordable Tools:
- Use of electronic health records, administrative data, progress monitoring, or other existing program resources to promote evaluation
- (Continuous) Quality Improvement or examples of iterative small scale trials of change
- Use of decision support tools
- Use of computer-based/online implementation methodologies
- Technological solutions: Machine learning, textual analysis, strategies for managing big data
Research Design and Statistical Solutions:
- Adaptive and SMART designs
- Analysis of qualitative data
- Hybrid designs (effectiveness-implementation hybrids)
- Methods that can rapidly inform health care practice
As always at SIRC, we hope most attendees will present as well as attend the conference, particularly our growing number of EBP Champion members (administrators, clinicians, trainers, and implementation practitioners and purveyors).
We invite submissions for oral presentations of 15-20 minutes or posters. Presentations not accepted for oral format will automatically be considered for poster format unless declined by the author.
Submissions include: title of presentation, an abstract of 200 words or less, 3-5 key words that describes your presentation, all authors’ names and affiliations. You can copy and paste or type text directly into the submission survey.
The deadline for submissions is February 13, 2015
***Please note symposia of 3 presenters will be organized by the SIRC Core Committee based on the submissions received. If you have a group of presentations you would like to organize into a symposium, please email us at email@example.com and we can arrange for an alternate submission format. In order to complete the submission process for a symposium, you will need to specify both a chair and a discussant as well as at least 3 key words that best describe your symposium. ***
One of the most critical issues impeding improvements in public health today is the enormous gap between what we know can optimize health and healthcare and what actually gets implemented in every day practice. The science of dissemination and implementation (D&I) seeks to address this gap by understanding how to best ensure that evidence-based strategies to improve health and prevent disease are effectively delivered in clinical and public health practice.
Applications are being accepted now through April 10, 2015. TIDIRH takes place in Pasadena, CA from July 26-31, 2015. There is no fee to apply to attend the institute.
