Kaiser Permanente Colorado Opens Center for Health Dissemination and Implementation Research

DENVER, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The future of health care in this country depends on quality research being integrated into practice and health policy. But putting research into practice often doesn't always happen and can sometimes slow the pace of cutting-edge care. Kaiser Permanente Colorado is proud to announce the first-of-its-kind broad-based research center aimed at getting research into practice and policy more quickly by helping researchers, clinicians and health care leaders gain a better understanding of the best methods of dissemination and of the key steps in integrating research-based programs into real-world health care.

James W. Dearing, Ph.D. and Russell E. Glasgow, Ph.D. are co-directors of the new research center. It will serve as a collaborative learning laboratory and a resource to stimulate, support and evaluate translational research. Assistance will be provided in the areas of planning and design, literature review and translation references, research and clinical tool validation, consultation/technical assistance, and practical evaluation of dissemination and implementation efforts.

"Opening the Center for Health Dissemination and Implementation Research positions Kaiser Permanente Colorado as a national leader in the scientific study and research-based application about dissemination and implementation," said Dearing.

As leading health organizations in this country demand increased knowledge application and accountability, the center's role will be to contribute prominently in setting the national agenda for helping to define and advance the fields of:

-- The applied science of implementation and dissemination research.

-- Identification and use of best processes for implementing

evidence-based practices.

-- Creation of tools for the integration of health care research into

practice and policy.

"The ultimate measure of research lies in its impact, "said C. Tracy Orleans, Ph.D., Distinguished Fellow and Senior Scientist, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. "Under the leadership of Drs. Dearing and Glasgow, Kaiser Permanente's Center for Health Dissemination and Implementation Research is certain to continue to transform the ways in which we think about, design, fund, disseminate and implement health research that makes a difference."

The Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Dissemination and Implementation Research has initial project grants from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute. Further details can be found at

The Center for Health Dissemination and Implementation Research is part of Kaiser Permanente Colorado's Institute for Health Research (IHR). Find it online at
