Education Program

​Directed by Bethany Kwan, PhD, MSPH​

​​The mission of the educational program is to foster an active learning community on state-of-the-art outcomes and community translational research methods and application. 

Our educational focus is on methods in health outcomes research, health services research, dissemination and implementation (D&I) science, comparative effectiveness and patient-centered outcomes research, and delivery science.

Goals & Objectives

  • Increase campus awareness and use of ACCORDS outcomes and community translational research methods and expertise
  • Develop and promote advanced methodological expertise in ACCORDS investigators and staff in strategic outcomes and translational research domains
  • Accelerate dissemination and adoption of advanced outcomes and translational research methods
  • Increase productive collaborations and team science within ACCORDS and across campus

Micro-costing is a cost estimation method that involves the direct enumeration and costing out of every input used to deploy an implementation strategy or an evidence-based intervention (EBI). Reliable cost information provides the foundation of all economic evaluations, which inform resource allocation decisions impacting the implementation and sustainability of EBIs. Despite the widespread use of this method, there is no standardized checklist for the conduct, reporting, and appraisal of micro-costing studies. This presentation will discuss the strengths and limitations of state-of-the art micro-costing approaches and data collection tools. It will conclude with thoughts about the direction for methodological development.
