This presentation will unpack knowledge dissemination and implementation, two necessary methods for ensuring the best evidence is provided in care settings. It is widely acknowledged that researchers often fail to effectively disseminate their research findings or fully describe the core components of new mental health interventions that are ready for use in practice. This presentation will review what is needed to implement new evidence-based interventions and practice settings and include an overview of recently developed tools to aid in this endeavor.
Physicians (psychiatrists, pediatricians, child neurologists), psychologists, social workers, other mental health clinicians and researchers, and students and trainees.
UPON COMPLETION OF THIS ACTIVITY, PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO:
- Define knowledge dissemination and implementation.
- Identify the core components (key ingredients) of implementation.
- Understand how to implement an intervention in their practice organization.
