D&I Education and Resources

Short Course

Our program archives provide all event agendas, materials, and speaker presentation videos.

Frameworks & Tools

Researchers are encouraged to use D&I frameworks and tools for study design. These frameworks and tools will help guide your dissemination and implementation planning and activities.

How to Get Started

There are more than 60 frameworks for your use. For guidance on selecting the right framework tool, we recommend you begin with Dr. Tabek’s publication: Bridging Research and Practice: Models for Dissemination and Implementation Research (PDF)

For an in-depth look at several options, please visit this interactive and searchable website database developed by the Center for Research in Implementation Science and Prevention (CRISP) at the University of Colorado.

Our D&I team has also developed this list below of frequently used frameworks successfully utilized by the research community. This cultivated list provides researchers with a starting point to begin planning dissemination and implementation activities.

This list is sorted into three primary categories:

  • Dissemination Focus (D>I)
  • Equal Focus of Dissemination & Implementation (D=I)
  • Implementation Focus (I>D)

Other Framework(s)
