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
Implementation Strategies Adapted for Communities Enhancing Health Equity Through a New Compilation discussed how a new complication aims to address the gap of implementation strategies, (methods or techniques used to move research to practice), and how they have predominantly been operationalized and studied in healthcare settings.
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:
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 published a series of papers:
Policy and Implementation Science
Four Ways of Thinking about Policy in Implementation Science explored innovative approaches to policy in implementation science and aimed to gain fresh insights into public goods for the action group. Jonathan Purtle, a renowned expert in the field, delivered a captivating presentation on the topic.
Policy Action Group Series
The Policy action group held a series of Implementation Science webinars between October 2020 and February 2021.
TIDIRC: Policy Implementation Science - This lecture provides an overview of policy implementation science and identifies the impacts and challenges of policy dissemination and policy implementation studies including the role of policy makers. This session is part of the curriculum for the Training Institute in Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (TIDIRC).
Implementation Science in Global Health
Rapid Cycle Design in Implementation Science
NCI hosted the Rapid Cycle Research in Cancer Care Virtual Workshop from February 16-17, 2022. The workshop identified principal features that should inform the design of rapid cycle research to improve cancer care delivery, explored multi-faceted barriers toward conducting rapid cycle research in cancer care delivery settings, and generated viable solutions for increasing the quality and quantity of rapid cycle research conducted in cancer care delivery settings.
Technology in Implementation Science
Research Priorities: Leveraging Health Information Technology to Address Cancer Prevention Disparities in Primary Care discussed how the use of optimized health information technologies (HIT) could enhance guideline-concordant cancer screening delivery in primary care settings.
