InCHIP’s dissemination and implementation research recognizes the increasingly worrying gap between research and practice, and is designed to advance the dissemination and implementation (D&I) of evidence-based practices in health promotion and disease prevention interventions. For example, a recent study led by InCHIP researchers combined a self-sustaining statewide weight loss program with effective behavioral weight control strategies (e.g., weekly multi-media behavioral lessons, computer generated individualized feedback) to improve weight loss outcomes among participants. For more information on D&I practices, please explore the web-based resources listed below. These resources include fact sheets about UConn-developed dissemination-ready health innovations, measurement instruments, archived lecture materials, and the “D&I Measurement Compendium.” The Compendium is a white paper written by InCHIP researchers that provides investigators with a synthesis of validated measurement tools designed to assess D&I-related constructs.
