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