The Third Coast CFAR is home to experts in implementation research and multiple studies that use implementation science methods to advance the development of effective HIV prevention and treatment interventions. Its Behavioral, Social, and Implementation Sciences (BSIS) Core offers training and consultation in implementation science to investigators, as well as health department and community collaborators. Building on a successful NIH administrative supplement awarded to Third Coast CFAR and Johns Hopkins CFAR in 2017, we have led the establishment of inter-CFAR collaborations in implementation science.
As part of this initiative, the Third Coast CFAR connects investigators to helpful training and resources to further their use of implementation science. Specific topics in these materials include:
- promote common language and definitions,
- advancing methodological innovation,
- initiating new implementation research to address HIV.
