ARCH Lab Implementation Science Projects
Implementation science is the study of methods to promote the usage of evidence-based practices (EBPs) into standard care. EBPs are practices that are backed by research findings. The ARCH (Accelerating Research-to-Practice in Community Health) lab uses implementation science to improve the health of those from underserved populations. This poster summarizes two out of the four projects that are led by the ARCH lab. The first project, the Philadelphia Alliance for Child Trauma Services, focuses on the implementation of trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), while also increasing the screenings and assessments of children in varying healthcare settings. The second project, the Firearm Safety Check, focuses on the implementation of the Safety Check intervention which has the objective of implementing firearm means restrictions in pediatric primary care to reudce death by suicide.
