The Implementation Science Core provides consultation services as a component of the Center for Clinical Quality and Implementation Research (CCQIR). The CCQIR is comprised of more than 30 core faculty members engaged in local, regional, and national efforts to improve health and healthcare delivery. A robust funding portfolio of approximately $27 million in annual awarded direct costs is supported by NIH, AHRQ, CMS, PCORI, and CDC. Notable projects involve studying implementation of interventions to improve medication reconciliation, reduce hospital readmission, increase healthcare access and retention in care, and build infrastructure for pragmatic trials.

The Implementation Science Core includes faculty and staff with expertise in a wide array of methodological areas including quality improvement frameworks (PDSA, Six Sigma, Lean), systems-level process change (process mapping), Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), research design (quasi-experimental studies, pragmatic clinical trials, mixed-methods approaches), process evaluation (adoption, fidelity), and data visualization. Core consulting services provide support to investigate the effectiveness of interventions in real-world clinical settings, navigate transformational change needed to incorporate evidence-based practices into routine care, identify and address redundancies and waste in healthcare delivery, quantify feasibility of improvement efforts, and identify methods for sustainability of improvement. The Core further provides services to enhance the rigor of scholarship around implementation science.

VICTR Vouchers Accepted

VICTR Vouchers provide financial support in the form of "micro-grants" (< $2,000) to enable preliminary work and generation of pilot data on clinical translational research projects. Applicants must describe how the research program has the potential to move from patient observations and laboratory discoveries to the bedside (and ultimately to clinical practice).  The submission process is minimal and requests are typically reviewed within two business days. Vouchers are limited to 1 award per year. Animal research is not funded through this mechanism.
