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. Also on the 24th will be the Implementation Development Workshop for our Network of Expertise (formerly Strategic Planning Group) members, click here for more details. Registration filled quickly and is currently open only to confirmed presenters. Please email email@example.com if are not a presenter and would like to be placed on the wait list. 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!).

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. ***
The interdisciplinary Prevention Science PhD program at Washington State University (WSU), in collaboration with the Washington State Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DBHR), seek candidates for a three-year postdoctoral research fellowship. The fellowship can begin as early as 8/15/2015. The candidate will work with Dr. Laura Hill, a prevention scientist and chair of WSU’s Department of Human Development, who will provide mentored training in research as well as protected time to participate in publishing, grant writing, and other career development opportunities, including teaching if desired. Fellows will have the opportunity to work with an interdisciplinary team of prevention scientists, state behavioral health (substance abuse and mental health) agency administrators and researchers, and community coalitions. The mentored portion of the position will be dedicated to evaluating the effectiveness of a statewide, non-experimental implementation of a community-coalition model for substance abuse prevention, the Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative (CPWI). CPWI coalitions, developed from evidence-based models including Communities that Care and SAMHSA’s SPF-SIG framework, are currently operating in 52 communities in Washington with an additional cohort of communities to be added in 2015. The project provides an opportunity to conduct cutting-edge methodological research on the effects of large-scale evidence-based interventions on population health and to work closely with a state agency to use research and program evaluation to inform policy and practice.
The fellowship program is administered by the Prevention Science PhD program and is co-funded with DBHR. The candidate will be located on the main campus of WSU in Pullman, Washington but will travel occasionally to the state capital, Olympia. The fellowship provides a competitive annual salary and health insurance. To be considered, candidates must submit application materials by email, including a letter of application describing interests, qualifications, and relevant experience; a current curriculum vitae; and complete contact information for three professional references. Inquiries can be directed to Dr. Laura Hill: firstname.lastname@example.org.
