Implementation Science Retreat

First CARRA Implementation Science Retreat

Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Marriott; February 24-25, 2020



The newly formed Implementation Science (ImpSci) Workgroup was launched at the 2019 CARRA Annual Scientific Meeting. Our goal is to facilitate implementation of CARRA research findings and to advance the CARRA Consensus Treatment Plan (CTP) program.

The first CARRA Implementation Science retreat will be held following the CARRA Registry Retreat.

The purpose of the ImpSci retreat is to learn about ImpSci study design, measurement principles, dissemination strategies, and to work together to develop approaches for improving efficiency of the CARRA CTP program and other CARRA projects. The agenda will include several invited speakers and breakout sessions.

6:00 pm   Welcome Dinner with invited speaker
Tuesday, February 25
