Implementation & Dissemination: Translating Clinical Research to Communities Workshop
Clinical trials conducted in academic health centers (AHCs) are critical for the generation of the evidence base. Although typically well controlled, such trials may not reflect the diverse demography of the US, particularly in regard to vulnerable populations. Community translation research begins with understanding methods that drive evidence-based findings, which are then modified to take into account culture, customs, language, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, insurance status or other factors that describe populations not often enrolled in clinical trials at AHCs. The translational research process may be qualitative or quantitative, and often involves implementation research that explores novel methods that bridge barriers to vulnerable populations, or dissemination
research, that leads to the generation of novel tools or products that may be widely disseminated.
