Dissemination Research and Implementation Science Seminar: I-TRUST, A Hybrid Type 2 Effectiveness and Implementation Multicenter Clinical Trial

@ 12:00 pm
Register to attend virtually

Please join us on Friday, Dec. 8, at noon for Dr. Yao Liu’s presentation “Implementation of Teleophthalmology in Rural Health Systems (I-TRUST) Study: A Hybrid Type 2 Effectiveness and Implementation Multicenter Clinical Trial.” She will discuss the I-TRUST Study’s methods of expanding ocular telehealth to prevent blindness from diabetes. The research seeks to advance health equity in rural and urban underserved primary care clinics. The study combines D&I, mixed methods, implementation costing, and health equity research. She will discuss methods and frameworks, as well as describe the transition from a K23-funded pilot study to a UG1-funded multicenter clinical trial with ancillary studies supported by NIH Diversity Supplements. Register via Zoom to attend the presentation.

Yao Liu, MD, MS, is a clinician-scientist and a past chair of the American Telemedicine Association Ocular Telehealth Special Interest Group. She has more than a decade of experience in telehealth for diabetic eye screening and is a co-author on national guidelines for telehealth use in diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. She is the principal investigator of the NIH/NEI UG1-funded I-TRUST Study.

The presentation is part of the DRISS series, an interactive, monthly lunchtime seminar for UW-Madison faculty, staff, students, and community members to learn about the growing science of dissemination and implementation research and practice. Enhance your knowledge and skills, share experiences, and develop connections with others in this community for your future work. Each seminar will feature a 40-minute presentation followed by 20 minutes of interactive discussion. DRISS occurs every second Friday of the academic year at noon. Seminars are open to all, and participants can receive credit for attendance through the Department of Population Health.
