Center for Implementation Research

The Center for Implementation Research (CIR) was established in 2014, supported by the UAMS Colleges of Pharmacy and Medicine at UAMS.The Center’s goals are to:

  1. Develop and test strategies to facilitate uptake and sustained use of evidence-based practices
    across a wide range of healthcare contexts,
  2. Support integration of evidence-based practices in community settings and UAMS programs,
  3. Evaluate the effectiveness of promising practices while preparing for their future implementation by simultaneously documenting barriers and facilitators to implementation, and
  4. Nurture the development of investigators, residents, and students interested in implementation and implementation science.
