This chapter advances the concept of “dissemination and implementation (D&I) outcomes” distinct from service system and health outcomes. It proposes several concepts that comprise D&I outcomes and discusses challenges and opportunities in their measurement. Conceptualizing and measuring D&I outcomes will advance understanding of D&I processes and their empirical study. It argues that the progress of D&I science requires the development of reliable and valid measures of outcomes. Reliable and valid measures of D&I outcomes will enable empirical testing of the success of efforts to disseminate and implement new interventions, and pave the way for comparative effectiveness research on D&I strategies.

Keywords:   dissemination and implementation outcomes, outcome measurement, D&I, empirical study
