This symposium builds on the work of two previous meetings on research
designs for translational research in health care and public health. This symposium addresses a range of research/evaluation designs and methods that may be needed to evaluate
quality improvement interventions (QIIs) in health care and public
- To review and discuss a range of research/evaluation design strategies
used in quality improvement interventions at several levels of the
health care and public health systems. Leading QII researchers and
evaluators will be asked to comment on the evaluation questions and
other factors that led them to use particular designs, and to reflect on
lessons learned or being learned from their experiences.
- To achieve a working consensus about the range of traditional and innovative designs and research and measurement methods that can be used to answer these key questions, identifying the strengths, weaknesses and tradeoffs of alternative designs and methods.
- To identify possible changes in funding mechanisms, review processes, and in research and publication standards that could help to accelerate the development and spread of reliable QII research methods.
