Implementation Science

The field of dissemination and implementation science promotes the utilization of methods and frameworks that support the adoption and adaptation of evidence-based interventions and policies into real world practice and health care. Frontiers can provide support to investigators who are looking to incorporate these methods into their own research.

Implementation Science Consultations

Not sure if your proposal is an implementation science proposal? Need help identifying the appropriate IS frameworks or methods for your project? Not sure where to publish your implementation science work? Frontiers can provide methodological and design consultations for investigators who need assistance in incorporating implementation science concepts into their work.  Click the Request Consultation button below to be connected to one of our navigators who can help provide support. 


What to expect from your consultation?

Consultations consist of 1 to 2 virtual meetings to understand your projects needs, deliver initial advice, and feedback and connect you with any relevant resources or training opportunities. We are happy to connect you with other potential collaborators but at this point in time, we do not have the staffing or resources to be ongoing key personnel on future projects. There may be the opportunity to provide limited consultations on future projects with the appropriate considerations. K award mentorship may be possible. 

Implementation Science Quarterly Meetings

Come join a dynamic group of local investigators who are looking to connect, collaborate and learn more about implementation science. This group meets quarterly and alternates between virtual and in-person meetings (locations to be determined). Please email Maggie Padek Kalman to be added to the group’s listserv and find more information about the next meeting.

Implementation Science Training

Frontiers offers several opportunities to receive formal training in Implementation Science.

The Training in Implementation: Actionable Research Approaches (TIARA) provides researchers and providers with skills in implementation science. Access to previous years modules can be found on the HI-IQ website as well as details on upcoming trainings:

There are also several implementation science related courses offered through University of Kansas Medical Center’s graduate programs. For more details, click here:
