Dr. Rinad Beidas

Rinad Beidas, PhD, is the Director of the Penn Medicine Nudge Unit; Founder and Director of the Penn Implementation Science Center at the Leonard Davis Institute (PISCE@LDI); and Associate Director at the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics (CHIBE). She is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry; Medical Ethics and Health Policy; and Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Major scientific discoveries have produced scores of evidence-based practices (EBPs) to improve health and mental health. Unfortunately, many of these EBPs never make their way into routine health care delivery. Implementation science is the study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of EBPs into routine care with the broad goal of ensuring that scientific discoveries realize their potential and improve people’s lives. Her research program is designed to improve the quality of health and mental health services through implementation science. To conduct this work, she collaborates closely with key stakeholders, including patients, clinicians, health system leaders, payers, and policy-makers, to develop natural laboratories in which to answer questions of interest. These labs span diverse health care settings, including community mental health clinics in Philadelphia, the network of Penn Medicine clinics and hospitals serving individuals with cancer, health centers providing HIV care, and the Mental Health Research Network, a national practice-based research network of 14 healthcare systems. Broadly, her work entails three primary foci that draw upon the methods of implementation science: (a) understanding the context in which individuals will implement EBPs, (b) developing implementation approaches that target the factors that may accelerate or hinder implementation, and (c) conducting pragmatic trials to test these implementation approaches. She does this work across disease areas (e.g., mental health, cancer, HIV). She has been identified as a leading implementation scientist and has published approximately 200 articles in this area. She serves as MPI on 2 NIH Centers on behavioral economics and implementation science (P50 MH 113840, P50 CA 244690) and has a strong record of NIH-funded implementation research serving as MPI or PI of 10 NIH grants totaling approximately $30 million dollars. She is deeply committed to training the next generation of implementation scientists and mentors graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty through a variety of mechanisms including a T32 at the intersection of implementation science and mental health. Dr. Beidas holds a bachelor of arts in psychology from Colgate University and a doctorate of philosophy in psychology from Temple University. She is the recipient of a number of awards, including the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies President’s New Researcher Award in 2015; the American Psychological Foundation Diane J. Willis Early Career Award; and the Perelman School of Medicine Marjorie Bowman New Investigator Research Award in 2017.

  1. Oral Presentations

Oral presentation time will be 15 minutes in total, which includes 5 minutes for Q & A. The presentation recording and PDF of slides will be posted in the online event space. Registered meeting participants will be able to view these leading up to the meeting, during the meeting dates, and after the meeting. The abstracts for each project will also be posted in the online meeting space and in the meeting program.

Technical info:

  • Please send a 10-minute video recording of your presentation, in MP4 format
  • Please send a PDF of your slides. 
  • We recommend using the Vimeo screen recorder to create your recording. It is free, it is quite user-friendly and the product has clear audio and visuals. 
  • It is your choice if you would like to include the webcam view of you presenting. In general audiences seem to prefer when they can see the presenter but we are giving you the choice. 
  • If you have a different preferred software for creating your mp4, that is fine! That said, we do not recommend using Zoom to make the recording, if possible. When a recording is created in Zoom and re-played in Zoom, the visual quality tends to be diminished. 
  • Please make sure text is large and there is strong contrast between text and background. We recommend minimum font size of 24 pt. 
  • Contrast checker here
  • Please ensure you describe any graphs, images, etc.
  • Be aware that videos may be laggy. 

Oral presentations format: we will play the 10-minute recorded presentation for the audience over Zoom. We would like the presenter to be online and available during that time. Once the 10-minute recording has concluded, there will be approximately 5 minutes of live Q&A. The audience may submit questions using the chat box or the Q&A function. There will be a moderator assigned to the session to read out the questions that come in. The presenter will be able to answer aloud (i.e. not restricted to the chat box).

Please send your materials (presentation recording & slides) by Monday, April 25th
