Alumna Jo Ann Shoup on Translating Research Into Practice

Ph.D. alumna Jo Ann Shoup ’15 recently published the article “Planning for Impact: Translating Research Into Practice by Using the RE-AIM Framework” on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s New Connections blog. Shoup is a senior research project manager in the Institute of Health Research at Kaiser Permanente Colorado.

She discusses how to use the RE-AIM (Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, and Maintenance) evaluation framework to help facilitate research to practice. “You might wonder why planning for implementation at the beginning of your research would be important to the research you conduct. Surprisingly, only 14 percent of evidence-based research transfers into population-based practice and this translation process takes, on average, 17 years to complete. But the RE-AIM framework mediates this lag by providing a sequenced approach to measure and evaluate outcomes along the research continuum, allowing for practical application of research in real world settings.”
