Workshop 1: Apply the RE-AIM Framework to Intervention Planning and Evaluation

12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Fee: Full/Associate/Emeritus Members: $95; Student/Trainees or Transitional Members: $57; Non-Members: $115

Sponsored by the RE-AIM Workgroup and the Evidence Based Behavioral Medicine Special Interest Group

Chair: Paul A. Estabrooks, PhD, Virginia Tech Riverside
Presenters: Paul A. Estabrooks, PhD, Virginia Tech Riverside; Russell E. Glasgow, PhD, University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine; Samantha M. Harden, PhD, Virginia Tech; Rodger Kessler, PhD, Vermont College of Medicine

The RE-AIM framework was developed to facilitate intervention planning and evaluation while balancing internal and external validity. It is also intended to provide a set of outcomes that can aid in understanding the context of intervention development and testing with a goal to speed research-practice translation. The overall goal of this interactive workshop is to briefly outline the history, core concepts, and common challenges of and with the RE-AIM framework. We will also highlight resources to aid in the planning and evaluation process, and provide project specific feedback to those who are applying the framework to a current or future project. Interactive activities will be used to achieve 4 primary objectives. One, demonstrate the use of RE-AIM for planning and evaluation of interventions with an emphasis on research-practice partnerships. Two, detail advanced methods necessary to fully employ the framework. Three, distinguish between implementation and effectiveness interventions and the implications for RE-AIM application and assessments. Four, provide strategies to address complexities of multi-leveled or component interventions (e.g., implementation-effectiveness hybrid trials). The first half of the workshop will include presentations with audience activities to underscore key points in RE-AIM planning and evaluation. The second half of the workshop will include breakout workgroups to provide expert consultation for workshop participants’ future or ongoing projects. Attendees are expected to come with ideas for potential projects or questions on ongoing projects to receive feedback. Breakout workgroups will be structured based upon attendee projects, but is anticipated to cover single and multileveled projects that address effectiveness, implementation, or effectiveness-implementation hybrid projects.

Workshop 2: Multi-Morbidities, Health and Self Management: Challenges and Opportunities

2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Fee: Full/Associate/Emeritus Members: $95; Student/Trainees or Transitional Members: $57; Non-Members: $115
Beverages included

Sponsored by the Multi-Morbidities SIG, American Psychological Association - Div 38 and the International Society of Behavioral Medicine

Presenters: Joost Dekker, PhD, VU University Medical Center; Robert M. Kaplan, PhD, Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research;Kate Lorig, DrPH, Stanford University School of Medicine; Jerry M. Suls, PhD, National Cancer Institute

Although patients often have two or more concurrent physical diseases, behavioral medicine has leaned toward a one-disease-at-a-time perspective. Speakers and members of the audience will describe and discuss the prevalence of multi-morbidities, how best to assess them, how patient self-management is a key component of any approach for treatment, present current perspectives on mechanisms of action underlying co-occurrence of certain physical conditions, and implications for current and future health practice.
