WEBINAR- SKOLARUS- Applying Models and Frameworks to D&I research: An Overview and Analysis

April 29, 2015   |   Ted Skolarus and Rachel Tabak

Skolarus, Ted & Tabak, Rachel (2015, January). Applying Models and Frameworks to D&I research: An overview and Analysis. Webinar presented through NCI Cyber seminar program.

After our December webinar, we received a number of questions about which D&I theories, frameworks, and models best enhance efforts to spread evidence-based interventions. We are delighted to welcome Drs. Rachel Tabak and Ted Skolarus to lead us in an assessment of this issue on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 from 1:00-2:00 pm ET. All the materials can be found at, in case additional instructions are necessary.

Dr. Tabak will present a review which used snowball sampling to: 1) develop an inventory of models; 2) synthesize this information based on three author-defined variables: construct flexibility, focus on dissemination and/or implementation activities, and socio-ecological framework level to categorize models; and 3) provide guidance on how to select a model. Dr. Skolarus will discuss an examination of citation frequency and impact of D&I models using citation analysis. As always, we invite you to share your insights and questions with us as well.
