Abstract

This column describes the essential role of partnerships in the conduct of dissemination and implementation (D&I) research. This research field, which develops knowledge to support the integration of health information and evidence-based practices, has thrived in recent years through research initiatives by federal agencies, states, foundations, and other funders. The authors describe three ongoing studies anchored in research partnerships to improve the implementation of effective practices within various service systems. Inherent in the challenge of introducing evidence-based practices in clinical and community settings is the participation of a wide range of stakeholders who may influence D&I efforts. Opportunities to enhance partnerships in D&I research are described, specifically in light of recent initiatives led by the National Institutes of Health. Partnerships remain a crucial component of successful D&I research. The future of the field depends on the ability to utilize partnerships to conduct more rigorous and robust research.
