Precision medicine research and novel clinical offerings: Ensuring equitable impact through implementation science

The second in the Carolina Seminar Series, Science meets society at the intersection between precision medicine and justice, equity, and inclusion

Speakers: Elizabeth Mayer-Davis, PhD, RD, Boshamer Distinguished Professor of Nutrition and Medicine, UNC-Chapel Hill
Caitlin Allen, PhD, MPH, Assistant Professor, Medical University of South Carolina

As technologies and health interventions expand at a rapid rate in healthcare, many providers and patients desire quick and efficient incorporation of these new offerings in to practice.  The field of implementation science can be critical in studying the barriers and facilitators to bring options previously available only in the research realm to the clinic. The design and development of health interventions are increasingly informed by implementation science theories, models, and frameworks to emphasize diverse reach and improve adoption and increase health equity in under served and marginalized communities. By testing new clinical offerings with implementation science methodologies, we can improve the quality of health practices for all patients while promoting equity and inclusion and ensuring that the availability of novel clinical offerings does not exacerbate existing health disparities.
