Our Mission

Ce-PIM’s goal is to provide precision for both implementation research and service.  Its mission is two-fold.  First, it serves as a national resource in the new field of implementation research and particularly in the development and application of implementation methodology.  As a national resource its methods are of general applicability to the wide set of challenges that researchers and practitioners face in scaling up evidence-based interventions in all areas of health and medicine. For both of these aims Ce-PIM provides opportunities for research, service systems and community organizations to learn, to adapt, and to use implementation strategies and methods that improve the adoption, full-scale implementation with fidelity, and sustainment of evidence-based practices, programs, and policies.  Second, it is designed to develop and disseminate methods to improve the implementation of evidence-based biomedical interventions into service systems for two specific prevention targets: drug abuse and HIV transmission.

Ce-PIM identifies and responds to critical methods gaps that are holding back the movement of numerous rigorously evaluated prevention programs involving biomedical interventions for preventing HIV that have demonstrated impact in efficacy and effectiveness trials. Pre-exposure prophylaxis, HIV testing, and early and consistent antiretroviral treatment have high potential for preventing HIV infections, but these are yet to be implemented sufficiently in racial/ethnic minority communities.

Our methodologic tools include many of the new “system science” approaches that address the complex, interacting and multilevel factors that affect program implementation, program quality, and ultimate impact on communities. These system science methods include social network analysis, agent based modeling, and intelligent data analysis.

 

 

 

OLD (unsure of from what date)

We at Ce-PIM seek to learn what the goal, opportunities, and capacities are of communities, institutions and agencies around prevention programs designed to reduce drug abuse, HIV infection, and sexual risk behavior. This information is critical to our Center’s planning to address the needs in the practice of, as well as research on prevention implementation over the next five years. To facilitate successful program implementation and evaluation at the federal, state, county, and local levels, the Center is developing new methods for improving implementation in communities as well as new methods for conducting implementation research, quality improvement, and evaluation in practice settings.

Ce-PIM collaborates and consults on implementation projects that are funded or being planned, as well as providing training to diverse groups engaged in implementation. We also provide opportunities for early career investigators to receive mentoring in this new field of implementation science, and the Center provides funding for pilot projects on a competitive basis. We also provide opportunities for postdoctoral fellowships and collaborations with leading prevention implementation researchers across the country.
