      The Health Implementation Science and Technology cluster (HIST) at the University of Limerick is delighted to host Prof Geoffrey M. Curran for a free on-line seminar on Tuesday 12th January 2021 from 12-1 pm.


Prof Curran is a medical sociologist. He is Professor of Pharmacy Practice and Psychiatry and Director of the Centre for Implementation Research at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS). His broad research area has been health services research, with focus areas in 1) predictors of treatment engagement and outcomes for mental health and substance use disorders, and 2) diffusion of innovation in a variety of health care settings (e.g., specialty care, primary care, and community settings). For the past 15+ years he has been continually funded by the National Institutes of Health (US) the US Department of Veterans Affairs to develop and test a range of facilitation and other implementation strategies designed to support the uptake and sustainment of evidence-based practices. Prof Curran also has written widely on research design and methodology in implementation science. The Center is devoted to developing and testing implementation strategies across a wide range of service contexts, assisting with the implementation of practices within UAMS clinics and community practices, and training the next generation of implementation scientists.
