Both the review in this chapter of what we know and the case examples of what is being done to close the gap between research discovery and program and policy delivery, suggest that a very small portion of the overall investment in research, practice, and policy work is being used to link the lessons learned from science with the lessons learned from policy and practice. From the research funding agency perspective, the NIH and CDC have supported dissemination and implementation research for the past several years. From the practice/policy funding perspective, the NIH and CDC have also provided support for such linkages as well as providing forums and IT tools to disseminate evidence-based intervention approaches and best practices both domestically and internationally. However, as noted previously, these relatively small steps at their current level of support, and in and of themselves, are unlikely to accelerate closing the discovery-delivery gap.
