This special edition of Grand Rounds examined the CDC Science Impact Framework, its development, use underway and opportunities and challenges associated with implementing it across the diverse areas of public health. 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.

The learning opportunity addresses what kind of impact CDC science has; if published research is likely to have impact on a significant health outcome; and how research findings can be used towards significant improvements in public health practice and policy.
