Researchers from the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) at the School of Medicine and the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis have created a new framework that public health and clinical scientists can use to measure the impact of their work in a variety of settings.
The Translational Science Benefits Model is intended to provide benchmarks to assess the impact of research that applies scientific findings to enhance public health and well-being. A paper explaining the development of the tool was published September 8, 2017 in Clinical and Translational Science.
The model identifies benefits of clinical and translational research in four areas:
- Clinical and Medical Benefits (Procedures, guidelines, tools, and products)
- Community and Public Health Benefits (Health activities, care, and promotion)
- Economic Benefits (Commercial products, financial savings and benefits)
- Policy and Legislative Benefits (Advisory activities, policies and legislation)
