  • Implementation in Progress-6/20/17
    • Details: Curing chronic hepatitis C infection is possible with advances in treatment, but many patients miss appointments and are therefore unable to initiate treatment. This presentation will describe the implementation of a financial incentive program to improve appointment attendance in the Adult Primary Care Hepatitis C Treatment Program at Boston Medical Center. Meeting will be led by Dr. Kristen Lee
  • Implementation in Progress-5/17/17
    • Details: Despite the existence of empirically-supported treatments for most common mental disorders, there is little evidence that these interventions are regularly employed in routine practice. This presentation will summarize barriers to widespread implementation of evidence-based mental health care and describe how transdiagnostic interventions are uniquely poised to address these barriers. Specifically, the application of the Unified Protocol for the Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders at a safety net non-profit serving Boston’s homeless population (Boston Healthcare for the Homeless Program) will be discussed. Meeting will be led by  Dr. Shannon Sauer-Zavala.
  • Implementation in Progress – 4/18/17
    • Details: The Gabby Health Information Technology system represents a prototype for the future of health care delivery in that it aligns the current technology and augments the care provided by community-based health providers, for whom limited time and resources act as restraining factors. This project will disseminate a low-cost, user-friendly, evidence-based, scalable intervention that is culturally adaptive and can be used across a range of health care and community settings to improve the health of young Black and African American women. This project represents the first step in the nationwide dissemination of the Gabby system—and will play an integral role in efforts to reduce health disparities in birth outcomes. Meeting will be led by Dr. Brian Jack and Clevanne Julce.
