Value of Innovation to Implementation Program (VI2P)

The goal of VI2P is to foster trans-disciplinary collaboration among scientists and practitioners to form project teams. In addition, VI2P aims to support studies to advance dissemination and implementation research methods and measures, and studies of de-implementation of clinical or community practices that are wasteful or not evidence-based but widely adopted.

There were twenty-five letters of intent (LOIs), and ten LOIs were invited for full proposal. The CHSR VI2P Review Panel conducted rigorous reviews following NIH review criteria and selected four projects to be funded:

Tobacco Use in Pregnancy Intervention for Cessation (ToPIC)
Kristin Ashford, PhD, College of Nursing

Partnership for Identification and Primary-care Based Enrollment to a Prevention Intervention for Diabetes (PIPE to Prevent Diabetes)
James Keck, MD MPH, College of Medicine

Implementing Oncology Precision Medicine in Kentucky
Jill Kolesar, PharmD, MS, College of Pharmacy

Adaptation and Pilot Implementation of the Family Check-Up for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children
