Applications for the 2018 Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (TIDIRH) Ireland have closed. Please check back at a later date or follow us on twitter for further training opportunities.
We are hosting TIDIRH-Ireland, a training course in implementation science developed in collaboration with the successful U.S based TIDIRH. This training will equip participants with the knowledge and skills required to undertake high quality dissemination and implementation (D&I) research relevant to their field and identify gaps that need further exploration thus potentially informing practice and influencing policy.
Health research and clinical guidelines tell us that things can be done to improve a person’s health, quality of life and experience of health services. Yet a gap persists between what should happen and what happens in real life. The science of D&I seeks to address this gap by evaluating ways of integrating interventions into real-world settings to improve health and prevent disease.
TIDIRH-Ireland is comprised of 3-month online course (six webinar sessions with related assignments) between mid-August and mid-November, and a 2-day in-person training to be held on November 26 and 27, 2018, in University College Cork, Ireland. Training will be facilitated by leading academics and researchers in theory, methods and evaluation approaches related to D&I. This course will prepare individuals for; creating partnerships and multilevel, transdisciplinary research teams; research design, methods, and analyses appropriate for D&I investigations; and conducting research at different and multiple levels of intervention (e.g., clinical, community, policy). The 2-day in-person training will also include a dedicated policy dissemination workshop, focusing on the preparation and communication of research for policy.
