Policy is a powerful tool for systematically altering healthcare access and quality, but the role that policy (and its inseparable politics, polity structures, and policymakers) plays in dissemination and implementation science efforts is understudied. This presentation will describe policy-relevant framework adaptations researchers can use to investigate policy’s role in implementation success. The presentation will also describe how policy-relevant framework adaptations are being used to guide research on tailored dissemination strategies to increase evidence-informed policymaking for opioid use disorder treatment.
