To address the lag between effectiveness and implementation research studies and the implementation of evidence-based practices into routine care, hybrid effectiveness-implementation studies promote examination of both effectiveness and implementation outcomes within a single study. There are three types of hybrid approaches (type 1, 2, and 3) and they vary based on their primary focus and the amount of emphasis on effectiveness versus implementation outcomes. This presentation introduces these approaches and provides and in-depth example of a type 2 study evaluating implementation of a suicide prevention intervention (Caring Contacts). This study will be used to highlight how one might use hybrid approaches to evaluate implementation of mental health and suicide prevention in other populations (e.g., adolescents, young adults).
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 the types of hybrid effectiveness-implementation approaches.
