NIH DIRH Funding Opportunity Announcements Webinar

Please join NCI’s Implementation Science Team and representatives from the Institutes and Centers contributing to the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) in Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health, for a webinar on the FOA, updated May 2016.

On May 8, 2016 the revised Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (R01/R21/R03) was released. The purpose of these FOAs is to support innovative approaches to identifying, developing, testing, evaluating and/or refining strategies to disseminate and implement evidence-based practices (e.g. behavioral interventions; prevention, early detection, diagnostic, treatment and disease management interventions; quality improvement programs) into public health, clinical practice, and community settings. Conversely, there is a benefit in understanding circumstances that create a need to “de-implement” or reduce the use of strategies and interventions that are not evidence-based, have been prematurely widely adopted, yield sub-optimal benefits for patients, or are harmful or wasteful. In addition, studies to advance dissemination and implementation research methods and measures are encouraged.

The session will present an overview of the re-issued Trans-NIH FOAs for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health including the revised focus and opportunities in these re-issued FOAs. You are encouraged to bring your questions as representatives from multiple ICs will be available to address them. Please find the registration information below.
