Dissemination and Implementation Science Approaches for Occupational Safety and Health Research: Implications for Advancing Total Worker Health

Dissemination and implementation (D&I) science, help address system-setting-, and worker-level factors to increase the uptake, impact, and sustainment of Total Worker Health® (TWH) activities. Which is an initiative of the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, is defined as policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related health and safety hazards by promoting efforts that advance worker well-being. Interventions that apply the TWH paradigm improve workplace health more rapidly than wellness programs alone.

Iterative RE-AIM Framework Video

Individual (RE) and Multi-level Setting (AIM) factors- community, organization, and staff

Please take a moment to view Iterative RE-AIM Framework to Inform Adaptations, a fun brief informational video from Cathy Battaglia and friends on Iterative RE-AIM. Iterative RE-AIM is a transitional research based approach from research to practice, policy, and real world applications. This video details how to carry out an Iterative RE-AIM assessment with your team.
