Implementation and Dissemination and Practice in a Policy and Community Context.

Reading List

About: The Partnered Research Center announces a bi-monthly Friday noon seminar (1 hour) in a journal club format. The theme is how to implement and disseminate effective mental health interventions and those that are valued by the community, as the policy environment changes over the next several years under state, federal and local policy reforms, such as the Patient Affordability and Accountable Care Act. The journal club is designed to bring academic and community partners and trainees together to learn about the concepts, theories, approaches, and research findings that are relevant to these questions, to help stimulate new research and build capacity in these areas.

Format: Journal Club: attend in person OR watch on-line.
