Dissemination and Implementation Research

The CCTSI Dissemination & Implementation (D&I) Research Core supports innovation, education, and application of D&I science and evidence for the CCTSI community and the broader CTSA consortium. We offer support in three areas: D&I Science Resources; Educational Opportunities; Mentorship, Consultation and Collaboration.

We partner with the D&I Science Program led by Dr. Russell Glasgow in the Adult & Child Center for Outcomes Research & Delivery Science (ACCORDS) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

The CCTSI and ACCORDS gather, develop, and curate literature, online interactive tools, eBooks, and materials to guide learning and application of D&I methods, measures and frameworks to clinical and translational research.
