About this Event
Interventions that have an impact under tightly controlled conditions frequently fail to demonstrate these same outcomes when transported to community-based settings. What accounts for the gap? One factor is that the program may not be implemented as intended, that is, with fidelity. At this Equity-Focused Dissemination & Implementation webinar, Wendi Cross, PhD, professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics at URMC, will describe the key constructs associated with implementer fidelity, measurement of those constructs, studies that show their importance, and emerging issues.
Cross is also a clinical psychologist and the director of Clinical Psychology Training Programs in the Department of Psychiatry. She directs the Laboratory for Behavioral Health Skills (LaBHS) and is a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar. She is a graduate fellow of the Implementation Research Institute (2011-2013). Her research interests include evidence-based training, implementation science, suicide prevention and the use of technology to improve access and delivery of behavioral health interventions.
