Description

The proposed Center for Prevention Implementation Methodology (Ce-PIM) for Drug Abuse and Sexual Risk
Behavior is designed to accelerate research through the application and integration of system science
methods. These system science methods directly model the complex interactions that occur across multiple
levels and organizations as prevention programs are implemented. Sophisticated social networking,
systems engineering, and computational modeling approaches are used to address the major methodologic
gaps that are holding back the movement of science to practice. Aim 1. Integrate and extend system science methods to address critical research challenges of federally
funded implementation research aimed at preventing drug use and sexual risk behaviors. This Center uses
advanced system science methods characterize, model, and test prevention implementation strategies. Aim 2. Facilitate the seamless integration of methodology into the next generation of prevention
implementation research on drug use and sexual risk behavior. This addresses the needs of implementation
researchers now in the field, those transitioning from effectiveness to implementation, and those embarking
on new careers. Ce-PIM proposes annual conferences, pilot projects, mentoring, and methods development
to advance research. Aim 3. Develop a new hybridized form of implementation research by integrating methods within the practice
of prevention implementation at the federal, state, county, and local levels. We propose designing field trials
to test large-scale implementation strategies as they are "rolled-out" in communities, and designing a range
of tools for inexpensive monitoring of the implementation process and decision making.
Ce-PIM works with and supports implementation research for 11 qualifying grantees. Its Administrative Core
is responsible for Mentoring, Pilot Research Development, and Communication and Dissemination. Its
Innovative Implementation Research Methods Core is designed to integrate system science methods and to
advance the use of these tools in research and practice.
