News from the NIH: highlights in implementation science from the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Mental Health
There is interest in and support for activities related to implementation science (IS) at the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute for Mental Health. Since some of the activities we mention are identified under the broad heading of dissemination and implementation (D&I) research, we consider D&I and IS to be synonymous for purposes of this update. This column highlights some of the activities in the field in the hopes that investigators will use these opportunities and resources to build upon current knowledge and practice in IS. Below, we summarize new opportunities in research funding and review, a training institute for dissemination and implementation researchers, resources available, and a new demonstration project designed to bring patient-centered care to the primary care setting. Several of these initiatives are trans-National Institutes of Health (NIH) activities in which multiple institutes and centers participate. This update does not intend to cover all NIH
