The collection is designed to bridge the fields of implementation science, health services research, and health economics to improve comparisons across implementation studies for informed decision-making. Given that costs are often a perceived barrier to implementing new evidence-based interventions, greater understanding of costs and economic evaluation more generally may help optimize uptake of evidence-based implementation strategies and interventions.

We are proud to feature a new article authored by Dr. Christina R. Studts, an ACCORDS D&I scientist, that shows how implementation science can be used in the field of audiology to increase the public health impact of evidence-based audiological practices and interventions. Audiology, like other health disciplines, has a large gap between when research discoveries are made and when (or if) they are adopted in usual practice. Dr. Studts highlights recent publications in audiology to show how the use of implementation science principles and approaches can close the research-to-practice gap and promote equitable, broad delivery of evidence-based interventions to ensure high-quality hearing care and improve function and quality of life for audiology patients. Learn more and see examples in the full article below.

The Rural Cancer Advisory Board is currently comprised of 9 women from all over the state. While not experts in healthcare, they are experts in rural living with a variety of backgrounds such as ranchers, teachers, and regional health connectors. The primary purpose of the group is to provide insight, feedback, and recommendations to cancer researchers from a rural patient and caregiver perspective. Our research advisors are volunteers. They have varying levels of experience with cancer; some personally, some as family caregivers, and some as community support.
The group meets every other month in a virtual format. Please contact Adreanne Brungardt for more information, including if you would like to present your research study for input from these patient advisors – Adreanne.email@example.com

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.
