“Implementation Science and Health Disparities: Issues of Scientific Integrity and Social Justice”
Abstract: Implementation research aims to understand how to increase the adoption of evidence-based interventions (EBI) in usual care. While the field has made great advances, challenges remain when implementing EBIs in underserved and disenfranchised communities in the US and internationally. The successful implementation of EBIs for vulnerable population in underserved and marginalized communities requires careful consideration of how existing paradigms of prevention, evaluation, and implementation science impact issues of social justice and equity. This presentation will use parent interventions as example to briefly talk about approaches in the continuum of intervention development, adaptation, optimization, evaluation, implementation, and scale up of different EBIs for vulnerable populations across the world.
