Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health

Social service sectors of care are uniquely positioned to influence the dissemination and implementation (D&I) of health prevention and intervention protocols to reach vulnerable populations. Current D&I efforts in the social services are often geared to implement complex protocols in complicated systems of care and possess interesting implications for D&I work and research in other sectors of care. This chapter discusses D&I in social service settings. It argues that while a number of well-developed, blended D&I models are being used in social service settings, they all require additional documentation, research, and field experience. Nonetheless, the lessons learned in the social services may help organizations in other sectors better implement health interventions with complex consumers in complex settings.
