The following set of learning objectives were developed to structure the first day of the workshop.
The first day of the workshop consisted of the following schedule. Details of each section of Day 1 is discussed below.
Note: You can download the slides and other materials for Day One at the bottom of the page. All of the program downloads can be found in the Materials Library.
Introduction of Workshop
Why care about Dissemination & Implementation (D&I) Science?
Diffusion of Innovation Theory and Consolidated Framework for Implementation (CFIR)
CFIR Framework Group Activity — Applying CFIR to a case study
As an icebreaker, we followed the Liberating Structures Mad Tea activity to engage trainees early in the workshop and to create a space for sharing. This activity lasted 5 minutes. In order to use this activity as an icebreaker, follow these steps:
Follow the same steps for each of the prompts.
This section of the workshop introduces trainees to the set of competencies that were used in developing this workshop.
This 15-minute section introduces the concepts of diffusion, dissemination and implementation using examples across the translational spectrum.
In this 35-minute section, the Diffusion of Innovation theory is introduced with various examples of diffusion of innovations. Afterwards, the CFIR framework was introduced with the five specific domains and constructs from each domain: 1) Intervention Characteristics, 2) Inner Setting, 3) Outer Setting, 4) Individual Characteristics, and 5) Processes.
This 20 minute group activity uses a case study, ideally one that is current and relevant to the trainees. Breakout groups with roughly 5-7 participants and a facilitator were created. The groups were provided a file describing the case study (see Appendix), and each was assigned one of the five CFIR domains to frame the discussion. Facilitators shared slides that included discussion questions. Facilitators asked for a trainee volunteer prior to the discussion to report out in the large group.
Case Study: Imagine a new COVID vaccine has been developed, tested and demonstrated to be effective. How are the following characteristics important in planning for implementation of the vaccine on a large scale:
During this 30 minute session, each group reported out its discussion using the lens of the assigned CFIR domain. The following questions were used for the small group report out:
Did any other CFIR domain come up in your discussion, which one, and why?
