Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Implementation science research to reduce adverse effects of SCD

From various publications and reports, we have characterized the risks associated with sickle cell disease (SCD) and understand many of the barriers for treatment of SCD in LMICs. How can implementation science research be used to reduce the negative outcomes of SCD in low/middle income countries?

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Promoting Research on Translation of Evidence into Practice within Academic Medical Health Care Systems

Academic Medical Centers (AMCs) must become translational research leaders by conducting implementation research (IR) within their own health care systems. Doing so will require new paradigms, breaking down silos between research and operations, new incentives, and new funding streams. Steps include CTSA renewal requirements for significant IR and building on the QUERI (Quality Enhancement Research Initiatives) from ...more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Addressing Health Care Disparities Requires Pragmatic Research

Jumpstarting progress in eliminating health care disparities requires comparative effectiveness and implementation research (T3 and T4) regarding optimal strategies for ensuring health care equity in the real world. Ensuring minority and other socially disadvantaged groups receive and benefit from evidence-based interventions at the same rate as others requires pragmatic research that identifies and addresses barriers ...more »
