The goal of this workshop is to organize available options for scientists as they commit to the goal of rapid translation of knowledge into action. The skills needed to engage in the translational process, as well as collaborative teams necessary to advance action will be highlighted. Workshop participants will be exposed to a range of concrete ways that evidence is being used to inform current mobilization and advocacy efforts, practice or policy change initiatives. Examples of communication, social media and network convenings will be offered. Frameworks, strategies and work plans across a range of projects aimed at advancing change in child behavioral health practice and policy, social mobility and racial equity and health care transformation will be shared. Examples of policy briefs, informational materials, and conference agendas will be made available to participants.
