Community Providers’ Impression of HIV Prevention Research in the CTN


This exploratory survey study, published in Journal of Drug Issues and co-written by Pacific Northwest Node researchers Bryan Hartzler, Mary Hatch-Maillette, and Don Calsyn, as well as Aimee Campbell, Gloria Miele and Susan Tross of the Greater New York Node, assessed staff attitudes as a function of direct research participation, treatment program type, and study performance within 7 methadone maintenance and 8 psychosocial outpatient substance abuse treatment programs participating in CTN-0018 and -0019 (HIV risk reduction in men and women, respectively).

Findings determined that effectiveness trials, such as the ones conducted in the CTN, offer a valuable opportunity to assess provider-level factors associated with adoption and implementation.  This study supports continued research on effective methodology for collaboration between investigators and providers to influence post-study implementation.
