Dispatches from Implementation Science at NCI
By: Mindy Clyne
The COVID-19 pandemic has shed a new light on the importance of implementation science (IS) both in delivering the right interventions for the control of the pandemic, the direct impact, as well as adapting to the disruption in health services as a result of the pandemic, the indirect impact (e.g., addressing delay in cancer screening). Scaling up IS capacity is more important now than ever, notably in precision health research, where successful implementation of interventions is needed at the population level.
Increasing the Usage of the Research-Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) Website to Support Implementation of Effective Cancer Control
Last year, we began a strategic planning effort for the Research-Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) website to further enhance the website features, with the goal of increasing usage among practitioners, policymakers, and researchers.
Healthcare delivery settings influence every step of how care is given, yet far more work is needed to effectively describe characteristics of these settings; to link those characteristics to outcomes; and to develop setting-changing interventions to improve care quality.
On the heels of the 12th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation , I find myself reflecting on the essential topic of measurement.

Increasing the Usage of the Research-Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) Website To Support Implementation of Effective Cancer Control
Over the years, I have managed the Research-Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) website and have continued to be interested in how we can enhance the features for practitioner use of the website.
The Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program is a postdoctoral program that trains future leaders in the field of cancer prevention and control.

Being a relative newcomer to implementation science, I am still learning about this field’s many contributions to the development of methods for promoting widespread adoption and integration of evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies.
This past week, our team had a strategic planning retreat that was designed to build on our previous work, challenge our current assumptions, and focus on developing new projects.
The NCI Implementation Science Team takes seriously our mission to advance the science of implementation and integrate implementation science within the broader cancer control and population sciences context.
In response to this major public health problem, a variety of intervention programs are being implemented by governments and NGOs across the globe to distribute and encourage the use of cleaner cooking technologies.
Earlier this fall, I had the honor of organizing the NCI Exercise Science and Skin Cancer Prevention Research meeting on September 26-27, 2018, in Rockville, MD.

We need innovation to address our chronic disease burden, and design thinking has emerged as a promising tool.
As defined by the CDC, Comprehensive Cancer Control (CCC) is an approach that brings together key partners and organizations to develop a plan to reduce the numbers of community members that develop and are diagnosed with cancer.
