NIH Living TextbookThe Living Textbook​ reflects a collection of expert consensus regarding special considerations, standard approaches, and best practices in the design, conduct, and reporting of pragmatic clinical trials.

Given the rapid pace of change in this field, this electronic textbook will continue to be added to and updated.


RE-AIM Planning Approach to Enhance Translation and Dissemination: Questions to ask when planning programs or developing assessment plans Download the RE-AIM guide​


mrm The Make Research Matter website​ consists of four main tools:


  1. Planning Tool-an interactive survey which provides a tailored report that aids researchers with their dissemination plan;

  3. Resource Library-a searchable database consisting of a compilation of D&I related articles from multiple sources which is updated monthly;
  4. Narrative Library-a freely accessible online library containing video vignettes and transcripts with junior and senior D&I experts of "how-to" knowledge to D&I problems;
  5. Glossary-containing over 100 definitions of terminology used in D&I health research. Additionally, users of the MRM website can learn more about current publications and presentations, and current news related to D&I.​ was designed to help researchers and practitioners to select the D&I Model that best fits their research question or practice problem, adapt the model to the study or practice context, fully integrate the model into the research or practice process, and find existing measurement instruments for the model constructs. The term ‘Models’ is used to refer to both theories and frameworks that enhance the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based interventions more likely. Pragmatic trials are randomized controlled studies whose purpose is to inform decisions about practice.  

They address questions of major clinical and public health importance and produce results that can be generalized and applied in usual care settings. Because they produce real-world evidence, they help to close the translation gap between discovery and practice.

This workbook is designed to be a navigation guide providing key references and online resources to aid you in further study and application. ​




crispeUnderstanding how best to disseminate and implement evidence-based healthcare and prevention, while not implementing inappropriate or unnecessary services, is challenging.​

This Guide was developed by the Center for Research in Implementation Science and Prevention (CRISP) in partnership with colleagues from the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI), the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Education Dissemination and Implementation Research, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.​​​​​

Closing the gap between research discovery and clinical and community practice is essential if we are to succeed in improving our nation’s health. 


ReaimRE-AIM Tools and Calculators​​​​ This site provides an explanation of and resources for those wanting to apply the RE-AIM framework. The RE-AIM framework is designed to enhance the quality, speed, and public health impact of efforts to translate research into practice.








GemThumbGEM's "D&I" Measures​ - The Grid-Enabled Measures Database (GEM) is a web-based collaborative tool containing behavioral, social science, and other relevant scientific measures. The goal of GEM is "to support and encourage a community of users to drive consensus on best measures and share the resulting data from those measures."

Because users can search for and download measures by subject area or keyword, this web resource is a great place for dissemination and implementation experts to access, contribute toward, rate and even add to a database of measures for D & I and other areas.​


ImpSci Exchange UNCThe Implementation Science Exchange​ is a free, online source for those interested in resources to help design, acquire funding for, execute and disseminate Implementation Science research projects. The Implementation Science Exchange is a public service of the NC Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It is developed and managed by the NC TraCS IS working group, with support from NC TraCS Communications and Web Development team.



EvalHubsnipCU Family Medicine Evaluation Hub​ - The Evaluation Hub is a resource available to all members of the Department of Family Medicine (DFM) - that brings together evaluation expertise and resources via one easy access point. The DFM has made available a limited amount of funding to facilitate access to evaluation consultation services at no cost to you.

If you are working on a departmental program or project that needs evaluation help, the Hub is here to support you!




MeasurespersonMeasures for person-centered Coordinated Care - The website is an online database of Patient-Reported Outcomes Measures (PROMs) and Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) that can be utilized within programs that aim to deliver or evaluate person-centered coordinated care (P3C). This project is designed to be of value to a range of stakeholders (such as healthcare professionals, commissioners, and managers), but the resource is also a useful research tool, with features such as links to PubMed literature. ​



The MMAT is a critical appraisal tool that is designed for the appraisal stage of systematic mixed studies reviews, i.e., reviews that include qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods studies. It permits to appraise the methodological quality of five categories to studies: qualitative research, randomized controlled trials, non-randomized studies, quantitative descriptive studies, and mixed methods studies.

BetterevalThumbBetter Evaluation - An international collaboration to improve evaluation practice and theory by sharing and generating information about options (methods or processes) and approaches.

Having an agreed set of Key Evaluation Questions (KEQs) makes it easier to decide what data to collect, how to analyze it, and how to report it. The link above will take you directly to the entry on "Key Evaluation Questions."




SIRCThe Society for Implementation Research Collaboration (SIRC)​ - SIRC is a society that brings together researchers and stakeholders committed to the rigorous evaluation of the implementation of evidence-based psychosocial interventions. SIRC conferences occur biennially. The 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.” 

Resources on the site include event registration, information on past conferences, news, updates, description of initiatives and access to the SIRC "Network of Expertise" (NoE). While the core group of the NoE includes experienced investigators, practitioners​, and champions of EBP, the network is welcome to members at all levels. 


PSMG thumbThe Prevention Science and Methodology Group is a virtual network of more than 600 empirical researchers and methodologists aimed to advance the field of prevention science and support the implementation of evidence-based prevention programs. Virtual​ Grand Rounds are held frequently and archived HERE​for future learning.





Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (TIDIRC) OpenAccess

TIDIRC OpenAccess makes the online training materials used in the TIDIRC Facilitated Course open to the public. The free, online materials provide an overview to dissemination and implementation (D&I) research. Each module serves as an introduction to fundamental terms, concepts, and principles of D&I with examples of their application.
