ABSTRACT:
Effective implementation often requires the use of multifaceted, multilevel implementation strategies given the myriad barriers to delivering evidence-based practices in community settings. Ideally, the design of implementation strategies would be guided by theory, evidence, and pragmatic input from relevant stakeholders; however, methods to guide the application of implementation strategies are not well developed. There is a clear need for rigorous and practical methods to guide stakeholders in the identification, selection, and tailoring of implementation strategies for their contexts. This presentation will include an overview of emerging approaches to the design and application of implementation strategies, a discussion of key priorities for the field, and an introduction to a study focused on developing and piloting a novel method for tailoring implementation strategies to specific contexts.

About PSMG:

Ce-PIM‘s Prevention Science and Methodology Group (PSMG) is a virtual network of more than 480 empirical researchers and methodologists aimed to advance the field of prevention science and support the implementation of evidence-based prevention programs. The PSMG grand rounds are now conducted virtually over the internet, allowing the members to view, question, and comment live from their own computer with leading scientists and methodologists at no cost. Access to live presentations is restricted to PSMG members. However, PSMG presentations are recorded and will be publicly accessible on our website two weeks after the presentation date on the archive page.

The PSMG will host sessions devoted specifically to HIV Prevention (chaired by Nanette Benbow and Gregory Phillips) as well as Implementation Science (chaired by J D Smith), Agent-Based Modeling (chaired by Wouter Vermeer), and Innovations in Research Designs (chaired by Booil Jo).
