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 health.

  • 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.
