ACCORDS D&I offers interactive resources and services are for anyone, wheather you have been doing D&I research for decades or are brand new our resource & services can help implement theory driven D&I practices.
We partner with the D&I Research Core led by Dr. Bethany Kwan in the Colorado Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CCTSI) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
If you know the D&I team member you wish to contact, please still complete the consultation request form. Content area, D&I issue or questions and expertise of one of the above is the clearly best fit. If you are unclear or your request cuts across multiple D&I areas, please contact Dr. Jodi Holtrop, who will be is the primary consultation contact person and she will triage consultation requests to the most appropriate D&I team member.
We ask that you please complete the consultation request form below. This form takes less than 5 minutes to complete and is confidential. Your completed form will go to Dr. Jodi Holtrop, who will contact you within 1 week of submission to coordinate a consultation meeting.
Your consultation experience will be more efficient and productive if you think about and come prepared to share the following with the D&I team member:
Consultations are one to two meetings with a D&I team member to receive advice, feedback, references, provision of and connection with D&I resources, and linkage to other SOM or content expertise if relevant. Collaboration on grant proposals as a co-investigator may result from a small number of selected projects, based on the time, content area and resources of the D&I member. We do not have the time, resources or staff to be a key part of many proposals or projects requiring ongoing substantial involvement. Some K awards mentorship may be possible.
The mission of the Dissemination & Implementation Graduate Certificate Program is to equip our graduates with the D&I research skills needed to design rigorous and innovative translational research, and to successfully compete for federal funding to carry out their proposed work.
We individualize our training to address key D&I competencies and meet each trainee’s unique program goals through three key strategies:
This guide provides direction and all the associated resources, measures, and materials in one place to successfully use Iterative PRISM and RE-AIM in an iterative manner to provide real time feedback on issues and progress in a given study, program, intervention, or project during all or a select set of phase of planning, implementation, or sustainment. Throughout this guide, we discuss possible ways in which Iterative PRISM and/or RE-AIM can be operationalized depending on the project. This method can be used to satisfy many needs throughout the phases of a project.
This is a draft version. The final version will be uploaded soon. Note: this draft file name is "iPRISM and REAIM Guidebook_WIP"
Here you will find a number of downloadable resources that we developed for our Costing Guidebook for Implementation Scientists. These resources are free to use, and they are intended for Implementation Scientists who are attempting to conduct a cost assessment on their own projects. None of these resources are finished products, and it is highly recommended that you update them according to your specific project and context, keeping in mind the principles of cost assessments described in our Guidebook.
Ensuring research priorities, conduct, and dissemination align with stakeholder needs and perspectives is important to novice and experienced users of stakeholder engagement strategies, but this can be a challenge with so many engagement strategies to choose from. DICEMethods.org, is an Interactive Webtool and Education Hub to help you find the best strategy for your research based on five elements: purpose, budget, number of interactions, time, and staffing/expertise.
Discover what RE-AIM is, use the interactive planning tool, get grant writing guidance, see the most recent presentations RE-AIM, and more on the RE-AIM website.

Dissemination-Implementation.org 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.
The Expanded CONSORT expands on the Basic CONSORT flow diagram for clinical trials to summarize external validity and contextual factors more concisely and transparently. It adds data about participation and representativeness at the levels of settings and staff, and about intervention sustainability after project support ends. This figure provides a method to address the representativeness, generalizability and sustainability of outcomes research more efficiently.
