Abstract

Dissemination and Implementation Science (DIS) is a growing research field that seeks to inform how evidence-based interventions can be successfully adopted, implemented, and maintained in health care delivery and community settings. In this article, an overview of DIS and how it has contributed to primary care delivery improvement, future opportunities for its use, and DIS resources for learning are described. Case examples are provided to illustrate how DIS can be used to solve the complex implementation and dissemination problems that emerge in primary care. Finally, recommendations are made to guide the use of DIS to inform and drive improvements in primary care delivery.
