About this Event
Despite the utility and ubiquity of feasibility and pilot studies and their critical role in translational and implementation science, few health scientists are familiar with the growing literature on how to rigorously design and conduct these studies. Drawing on over twenty years of experience in HIV research and as an NIH reviewer, James McMahon, PhD, associate professor in the UR School of Nursing, will synthesize this literature in this Equity-Focused Dissemination & Implementation webinar. McMahon will provide a best-practices guide for designing feasibility and pilot studies, with an eye toward health-equity implementation.
McMahon is also an associate professor of Public Health Science at URMC as well as co-director of the Health Equity-Focused Dissemination and Implementation Function of the UR Clinical and Translational Science Institute. His work centers on the confluence of behavioral, social, and epidemiological factors that contribute to the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C in marginalized populations, with an emphasis on the implementation of multilevel interventions for disease prevention in social and community contexts. He has over twenty years of experience implementing various study designs along the translational continuum.
