Opportunities for Dissemination Research and Dissemination of Research
Russell E. Glasgow, PhD is a well known behavioral scientist who has worked in many transdisciplinary projects and settings including worksite health promotion, primary care based interventions, and community-based programs including community health centers and Native American tribes. He has researched target behaviors ranging from smoking prevention and cessation to chronic illness management, patient-provider communication, use of interactive technologies in health care, quality improvement and guidelines adherence. This session will discuss current issues and controversies in the design and conduct of dissemination research. Following this, opportunities for practitioner-researcher-community collaborations will be discussed. The final part of the session will discuss emerging opportunities and avenues to more broadly disseminate research findings into the practice and policy settings where they can have public health impact.
