This section provides resources and interactive tools for investigators conducting prevention-related dissemination and implementation (D&I) research.

D&I research seeks to rigorously evaluate strategies for integrating evidence-based approaches into clinical and diverse community settings via public health practice, health care delivery, and health care policy. The intent of this research is to:

  • Investigate and address social, behavioral, economic, and organizational factors and policies that impede effective dissemination and implementation of evidence-based clinical, public health, and organizational findings.
  • Test new approaches to improve health programming.
  • Determine causal relationships between the strategies to implement interventions and the impacts of their use.

D&I research is also characterized by a focus on variations in dissemination and implementation processes (e.g., how evidence/interventions are integrated) and how the context (e.g., setting, population, and economic drivers) leads to heterogeneity of results.

Research Highlight on D&I

The Research Highlight on D&I provides examples of D&I research activities and programs across the NIH, describes recent scientific advances and resources developed by the NIH and its federal partners, and includes links to D&I training and other online resources.

NIH Training Opportunities in D&I Research

NIH Training Opportunities in D&I Research methodology are provided with a focus on study design, data analysis, and measurement methods.

D&I-Related Programs, Offices, and Divisions at the NIH

NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) coordinate and conduct D&I research activities to prevent disease and improve health. Learn more about the D&I-Related Programs, Offices, and Divisions at the NIH.

Evidence-Based Practices and Programs

To facilitate the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based practices and interventions, the ODP has identified several databases and other resources that provide information on evidence-based disease prevention programs and practices with the potential to affect public health. This list of Evidence-Based Practices and Programs is intended for a range of audiences, including disease prevention researchers, community planners and implementers, health care and public health professionals, policymakers, and the general public.

D&I Frameworks, Theories, and Models

D&I Frameworks, Theories, and Models provide a systematic method for understanding, operationalizing, and evaluating the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based practices and interventions. This section provides resources to help investigators better understand how D&I models can address research questions or practice problems.

Prevention-Related Funding Opportunity Announcements in D&I Research

Prevention-Related Funding Opportunity Announcements in D&I Research provides information for extramural investigators about research grant opportunities across the NIH.

Examples of Funded D&I Projects

Examples of Funded D&I Projects include current D&I research projects supported by the NIH.

D&I Research Articles

The D&I Research Articles offer a selection of recent, peer-reviewed papers on prevention D&I research. The resource is intended to inform researchers and others who may be interested in recent publications in this area.
