The plenary featured two Dissemination and Implementation Program awardees, each of whom has developed thoughtful strategies for promoting the uptake of evidence from their PCORI-funded research in practice. Their strategies take findings out of the research context, address barriers to uptake, and are designed to establish scalable models for widespread future implementation.

This session:

  • Demonstrated PCORI’s commitment to, and achievements in, getting research results into practice to inform patients’ and others’ healthcare decisions.
  • Demonstrated the use of implementation science principles to inform putting PCORI-funded research findings into practice settings.
  • Raised awareness and understanding among PCORI-funded researchers about opportunities to extend their work, from testing the comparative effectiveness of interventions in the research setting to adapting approaches and demonstrating implementation in real-world settings.
