Welcome to RE-AIM.org!
In December, Jo Ann Shoup and her colleagues published a social network analysis of RE-AIM publications between 1999 (when the first RE-AIM article was published) until the end of 2012. They found 144 articles and ran a number of network analyses to show that the framework has broad reach which has increased significantly over the previous 14 years. Shoup also highlighted that there is an active RE-AIM ‘invisible college’ of investigators studying broad topics from physical activity to heart disease. These investigators have applied RE-AIM to randomized controlled trials, program evaluation, and prospective cohort designs.
As we get 2015 rolling, we hope this can come as a call to action of the “invisible RE-AIM college”… Both the keep up the great science and to expand beyond our typical colleagues with a goal to continue moving translational science forward with a balanced focus on internal and external validity.
