The NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program exists to help turn research from the lab, clinic, and community into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public at large. The field of dissemination and implementation (D&I) has essentially the same goal. Building the D&I capacity of CTSA grantees can substantially further a CTSA’s mission.
The purpose of this toolkit is to describe some key D&I resources and activities developed by the UW-Madison CTSA to support dissemination and implementation research and activities. The authors of Developing Dissemination and Implementation Capacity within a CTSA: a Toolkit hope the practical information offered might help other CTSA programs think about and develop the D&I resources that advance their goals.
