SAVE THE DATE! Addiction Health Services Research Conference

The Center for Dissemination and Implementation (CDI) at Stanford University School of Medicine is honored to host the Addiction Health Services Research (AHSR) conference, October 16-18, 2024, in San Francisco, CA. Join us at the historic Palace Hotel in the beautiful and bustling city of San Francisco and sign-up for updates about the conference.

NEW! Implementation Guides and Measures

The Center for Dissemination & Implementation At Stanford (C-DIAS) and the Research Adoption Support Center (RASC) recently developed a set of implementation guides and measures to support researchers and anyone seeking to evaluate or implement a health care innovation.

The Helping to End Addiction Long-term® Initiative, or NIH HEAL Initiative®, Data2Action Program (HD2A) supports Innovation and Acceleration Projects that make data more real-time and useful to accelerate the implementation of evidence-based interventions for opioid use disorder and pain management. HD2A supports efforts across the four pillars of the HHS Overdose Prevention Strategy: Primary Prevention, Harm Reduction, Evidence-Based Treatment, and Recovery Support.

Three centers provide scientific guidance and collaborative support to the HD2A program:

Research Adoption Support Center (RASC)

The RASC enhances the dissemination and implementation (D&I) research capability of the HD2A Innovation Projects and leverages this work to enhance the “implementability” of evidence-based practices beyond HD2A.

MERC

Modeling and Economic Resource Center (MERC)

The MERC provides consultation to the HD2A Innovation Projects about meta-modeling methods and cost analysis to facilitate the estimation of intervention effectiveness and impact.

DISC

Data Infrastructure Support Center (DISC)

The DISC assists HD2A Innovation Projects with data support, tools, coordination, training, and modernization.
