To support the ongoing efforts of the Consortium for Cancer Implementation Science, a collection of public goods (widely available tools and resources) has been developed by the CCIS action groups to address key challenges and advance the implementation science agenda in cancer.

Community Participation in Implementation Science
Members of the Community Participation action group have developed a resource document (PDF, 599 KB) for stakeholder and community engagement in implementation science.
Context and Equity in Implementation Science
The Context and Equity action group held a series of Implementation Science webinars between May 2020 and September 2021:
- Implementation Science: Context & Equity in Cancer Research
- Framing Priorities for Advancing Health Equity Through Implementation Science
- Opportunities for Examination of Structural Racism and other Social Determinants of Health to Advance Health Equity through Implementation Science
- Joining Forces: Engagement Science and Implementation Science to Advance Health Equity
Members of the Context and Equity action group have developed a resource document (PDF, 1.3 MB) for those working to advance health equity through implementation science.
The Columbia Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Implementation Science Initiative developed Readings/Resources/Curricula on Anti-Racism & Health Equity (PDF, 302 KB).
Places Cancer Screening Rates and SDOH: This R Shiny dashboard is to investigate geographic variation of cancer screening rates and its association with social disparity in the US.
Dr. Cory Bradley’s podcast series, Catch the Power, aims to provide a more immersive engagement among scholar and activist communities in the movement for health justice through offering exploratory public discourse about contemporary efforts in the literature and facilitating dialogue that builds the capacity of public health, academic research, practice/service delivery, and activist communities to enhance the design and implementation of strategies and interventions that close racialized health disparity gaps.
Members of the action group have also published a number of relevant articles related to context and equity:

Economics and Cost in Implementation Science
Members of the 2019 Economics & Cost action group have been working on a series of papers. The first article, Translating economic evaluations into financing strategies for implementing evidence-based practices was published earlier this year.
A second article, Implementation science issues in understanding, collecting, and using cost estimates: a multi-stakeholder perspective, was published in August 2021.
A third article, Moving beyond Aim Three: a need for a transdisciplinary approach to build capacity for economic evaluations in implementation science, was published in December 2021.
The full collection of articles is available on the economic evaluation in implementation science website.
Policy and Implementation Science
The Policy action group held a series of Implementation Science webinars between October 2020 and February 2021.
- Policy Implementation Science: A Critical Component of Evidence Translation webinar
- Improving the Use of Scientific Evidence in Policy Formulation webinar
- Adoption of Evidence-Based Policy in Governmental and Non-Governmental Sectors webinar
