UW ICTR has developed comprehensive Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) resources to support the translational research process. A recent publication in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science describes the essential role of stakeholder engagement in the evolution of the UW ICTR Community and Collaboration (C&Cn) component and its nationally acclaimed D&I Launchpad program.
- Quanbeck A, Mahoney J, Kies K, Judge K, Smith M. Building capacity for dissemination and implementation to maximize research impact in a CTSA: The University of Wisconsin story. J Clin Transl Sci. 2020 Jan 10;4(3):209-215. PMCID: PMC7348013.
Maureen Smith, UW ICTR Component Lead for C&Cn and Director of Community-Academic Partnerships, notes,
Colleagues from disciplines across campus embraced the UW CTSA mission to tackle system-wide barriers to conducting high quality community-partnered translational research. The UW story exemplifies the power of engagement to change the University culture from “silos” to interdisciplinary collaborations.
Two toolkits for CTSA program leaders based on the publication are available on the ICTR-supported HIPxChange dissemination portal:
- Quanbeck A, Mahoney J, Kies, K, Judge K, Smith M. Developing Dissemination and Implementation Capacity Within a CTSA: A Toolkit. 2019.
- Smith M, Judge K. Building Community Engaged Research Capacity within a CTSA. 2020.
Jane Mahoney, Director of the UW ICTR D&I Launchpad, adds,
Building D&I capacity requires vision and planning. With the UW ICTR Community and Collaboration component as a champion for D&I science we have partnered to build the UW ICTR D&I Launchpad into the robust program it is today.
