CDC's Grand Rounds Presents “Measuring Science Impact,” on Tuesday, January 21, at 1 p.m. (EST).

Grand Rounds button
We are pleased to present the January session of CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds, “Measuring Science Impact.” This session will be available via live webcast from CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia onTuesday, January 21 at 1 p.m. (EST) at http://www.cdc.gov/about/grand-rounds/.

Have you ever wondered what kind of impact CDC science has?  Did you ever want to know if your published research is likely to have impact on a significant health outcome?  Traditional citation data and journal metrics help us understand how widely the research is disseminated.  But then what?  How can these research findings be used towards significant improvements in public health practice or policy?

To help answer these questions, and trace and link scientific enterprise to significant outcomes, CDC has developed the Science Impact Framework.  The Framework utilizes a combination of quantitative and qualitative indicators to measure impact towards health outcomes, through five levels of influence: disseminating science, creating awareness, catalyzing action, effecting change, and shaping the future. The complex dynamics between the levels of influence and the intricate environment in which influence materializes create a path of impact which does not necessarily follow a linear progression.

Please join us for this special edition of Grand Rounds as we examine the CDC Science Impact Framework, its development, use underway and opportunities and challenges associated with implementing it across the diverse areas of public health.

Future Grand Rounds topics include preventing youth violence and multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis.

For non-CDC staff or those outside of the CDC firewall:
live external webcast will be available. Presentations are archived and posted 48 hours after each session. Due to security measures at CDC’s Roybal campus, non-CDC staff who wish to attend these sessions in person must have prior clearance and a U.S. state-issued photo ID (e.g., driver’s license, U.S. passport).

Names of non-CDC staff (both domestic and international) should be submitted to the Grand Rounds Team.Please note that all information for international visitors must be submitted at least 10 days in advance.

For CDC staff requiring reasonable accommodations:
It is the policy of CDC to provide reasonable accommodations (RA) for qualified individuals with disabilities to ensure their full inclusion in CDC-sponsored training events.  Employees are asked to submit RA requests at least two weeks prior to the training event.  Please e-mail the request to grandrounds@cdc.gov.

Grand Rounds is available for Continuing Education.
ALL Continuing Education hours for PHGR are issued online through the CDC/ATSDR Training and Continuing Education Online system. If you have questions, e-mail or call Learner Support at1-800-418-7246 (1-800-41TRAIN).

Those who attend PHGR either in person, Envision, IPTV, or “web on demand” and who wish to receive Continuing Education must complete the online seminar evaluation. Thirty days from the initial seminar the course number will change to WD1640 and will be available for continuing education until January 21, 2014. The course code for PHGR is PHGR10.

Target Audience: Physicians, nurses, epidemiologists, pharmacists, veterinarians, certified health education specialists, laboratorians, others


  1. List key measures of burden of disease involving morbidity, mortality, and/or cost.
  2. Describe evidence-based preventive interventions and the status of their implementations.
  3. Identify one key prevention science research gap.
  4. Name one key indicator by which progress and meeting prevention goals is measured.

CE certificates can be printed from your computer immediately upon completion of your online evaluation. A cumulative transcript of all CDC/ATSDR CE’s obtained through the TCE Online System will be maintained for each user. We hope that this will assist CDC staff and other public health professionals to fulfill the requirements for their professional licenses and certificates.
