Slide 7. Five Phases of Translational Research
Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) and AHRQ's Role in their Prevention
T0—discovery of opportunities to address health problems through technologic advances, surveillance, outbreak investigation, and epidemiologic studies.
T1—move discovery into first application of candidate intervention(s).
T2—assess the value of the candidate interventions, leading to the development of evidence-based recommendations.
T3—move evidence-based recommendations into health practice, through delivery, dissemination, and diffusion research.
T4—evaluate the "real world" health impact of population-level health practice.
