242A  Progam Evaluation in Clinical and Public Health Settings  (2 units)   Winter

Instructor(s): J. Myers       Prerequisite(s): None

Restrictions: Enrollment is not permitted if the cross-listed course IMS 242 or EPI 242 have been taken and passed.       Activities: Project, Web-based course work

This course provides training in evaluating a health program or strategy implemented in a clinical or public health setting. Scholars will develop an evaluation plan that uses logic models and evaluation frameworks (e.g., RE-AIM) to guide the systematic collection of information to understand if and how a program/implementation strategy is meeting its stated goals and objectives; improve program/implementation strategy effectiveness; and/or make decisions about future programming.

245  Introduction to Implementation Science: Theory and Design  (2 units)   Fall

Instructor(s): A. Cattamanchi       Prerequisite(s): Training or experience in clinical research, public health, quality improvement or health care organization leadership. Exceptions for these prerequisites may be made with the consent of the course director.

Restrictions: The course cannot be repeated for credit - students who take and pass EPI 245 or the online version of the course, IMS 245A, are not permitted to take this course.       Activities: Lecture, Seminar, Project

This course provides a foundation for designing and evaluating strategies to accelerate the translation of evidence into practice, policy, and public health. Concepts introduced include community engagement, behavior change theory, and implementation strategy design and evaluation frameworks, and study design. In addition to didactic work, scholars are guided through the creation of a protocol aimed towards facilitating uptake of their chosen health intervention. Cross-listed as EPI 245.

245A  Introduction to Implementation Science: Theory and Design  (2 units)   Fall

Instructor(s): A. Cattamanchi       Prerequisite(s): Training or experience in clinical research, public health, quality improvement or health care organization leadership. Exceptions for these prerequisites may be made with the consent of the course director.

Restrictions: The course cannot be repeated for credit - enrollment is not permitted if the in-person version of the course (cross-listed as EPI 245 or IMS 245) has been taken and passed.       Activities: Web-based course work

This online course provides a foundation for designing and evaluating strategies to accelerate the translation of evidence into practice, policy, and public health. Concepts introduced include community engagement, behavior change theory, and implementation strategy design and evaluation frameworks, and study design. In addition to didactic work, scholars are guided through the creation of a protocol aimed towards facilitating uptake of their chosen health intervention.

246  Translating Evidence into Practice: Intervention Design  (2 units)   Winter

Instructor(s): M. Handley, C. Lyles       Prerequisite(s): Training or experience in clinical research, public health, quality improvement or health care organization leadership. Exceptions for these prerequisites may be made with the consent of the course director.

Restrictions: The course cannot be repeated for credit - students who take and pass EPI 246 or the online version of the course, IMS 246A, are not permitted to take this course.        Activities: Lecture, Seminar, Project

Provides training in developing interventions targeting individual health behavior change, while also focusing on intervention design components that target multiple determinants: individual, interpersonal and system/community/structural level. Students use principles of behavior change theories and implementation frameworks applied to their work to solidify course concepts. Additional assignments involve case studies analysis and online discussions. Cross-listed with EPI 246

246A  Designing Health Care Intervention/Implementation Strategies  (2 units)   Winter

Instructor(s): M. Handley, C. Lyles       Prerequisite(s): Training or experience in clinical research, public health, quality improvement or health care organization leadership. Exceptions for these prerequisites may be made with the consent of the course director

Restrictions: The course cannot be repeated for credit - students who take and pass EPI 246 or IMS 246, are not permitted to take this course.       Activities: Lecture, Seminar, Project

This course provides training in developing interventions targeting individual health behavior change, while also focusing on intervention design components that target multiple determinants: individual, interpersonal and system/community/structural level. Students use principles of behavior change theories and implementation-related frameworks applied to their own work to solidify course concepts. Additional assignments involve case studies analysis online discussions with class colleagues.

248  Community-Engaged Research  (2 units)   Fall

Instructor(s): S. Ackerman       Prerequisite(s): Training or experience in public health, quality improvement or health care organization leadership. Exceptions for these prerequisites may be made with the consent of the course director.

Restrictions: Intended for students in the MAS or ATCR programs. Space permitting, individuals not enrolled in MAS/ATCR may take this course. Enrollment is not permitted if cross-listed course EPI 248 or IMS 248A (online version) has been taken and passed.        Activities: Seminar, Project, Web-based course work

This course provides training in the theory and practice of collaborating with patients, members of the public, and community-based organizations in health research, intervention design and implementation. Multiple engagement strategies are introduced through readings, guest speakers, case studies, and online discussions. Participatory research methods will be applied to trainees' ongoing or planned projects in order to adapt health interventions to real-world contexts. Cross-listed as EPI 248.

248A  Community-Engaged Research  (2 units)   Fall
