In collaboration with other academic institutions, professional organizations, and funding agencies, the Implementation Science team coordinates and supports several training and educational activities, including a monthly webinar series, training programs, and an annual conference. Collectively, these activities aim to increase the field’s capacity to conduct rigorous implementation research.
Implementation Science Webinars
The Implementation Science Webinars series is a free, monthly webinar series focused on advanced topics in dissemination and implementation (D&I) research.View Webinars
Dissemination & Implementation Orientation Webinar
This webinar is an introduction and orientation to the science of dissemination and implementation for those new to this field.
Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (TIDIRC)
The Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (TIDIRC) provides participants with a thorough grounding in conducting D&I research with a specific focus on cancer. All online training materials are open access. Applications for the facilitated program are accepted annually. Learn more.
Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (TIDIRH)
The Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (TIDIRH) was developed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to help build capacity in dissemination and implementation research. TIDIRH was held annually from 2011 through 2015 as a residential training program. From 2016 through 2020, TIDIRH has met in the Washington, D.C. area offered as a dual online and in-person training.

Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation
The Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation is convened on the front lines of D&I science to ensure that evidence is used to inform decisions that will improve the health of individuals and communities. Researchers, evaluators, and implementers interested in bridging the gap between evidence, practice, and policy in health and medicine by identifying opportunities, challenges, and strategies of disseminating and implementing research are encouraged to attend. Discuss, debate, and explore in-depth approaches to advance D&I science.
The 2020 conference theme is Dissemination and Implementation Science in a Dynamic, Diverse, and Interconnected World: Meeting the Urgent Challenges of our Time.
