Virtual Event

The University of Kentucky’s TRIPPPLe Team Alliance, Center for Health Equity Transformation, and the Center for Advancement of Pharmacy Practice are delighted to host Dr. Geoffrey Curran from the University of Arkansas who will be presenting, “An Overview of Hybrid Effectiveness – Implementation Designs”. March 16th from 3:00-4:00pm. Geoffrey Curran, PhD is a Professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at the University of Arkansas. He also serves as the Director of the Center for Implementation Research at the university. 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. Dr. Curran’s initial research focused on looking at the complex etiology of substance use disorders in which he has published several papers on the intersection of social and psychological factors in the development of problem substance use. He later became interested in health services research and began to investigate predictors of treatment engagement and outcomes for substance use disorders. In addition to this line of research, Dr. Curran simultaneously developed his research interests in the diffusion of innovation in mental health and primary care settings. His research has been supported by NIDA, NIMH, DOD and the VA to develop and test a range of facilitation strategies designed to support the uptake and sustainment of evidence-based practices.
