For our final fireside chat of 2018, we will be focusing on issues related to intervention scale-up, both as a priority research topic for our field and to whet the appetite for those attending (or virtually following via #DIScience18) the 11th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health the theme of which is Scaling up Effective Health and Healthcare: Advancing the Research Agenda and Necessary Infrastructure. We are excited to end the year delving into scale-up with invited experts who have spent the past few years thinking about how to take health promotion and preventive interventions to reach people, communities, and systems at orders of magnitude greater than our typical intervention trials and implementation studies.
On Thursday, November 29, 2018, 3:00-4:00pm ET, Dr. David Chambers will be joined by Dr. Barbara Riley, Executive Director of the Propel Centre for Population Health Impact and Dr. Cameron Willis, Director of Cause Impact & Translation at the Movember Foundation, Australia. Drs. Riley and Willis have focused on scale up of effective interventions both conceptually and empirically. They have most recently contributed a chapter on scale-up to an edited volume focusing on Advancing Implementation Science in Cancer Control. The session will include approximately 25 minutes of comments from our speakers and 35 minutes for engaged discussion and Q&A with the audience.
