To support the ongoing efforts of the Consortium for Cancer Implementation Science a collection of public goods, widely available tools and resources, have been developed by the action groups to address key challenges and advance the implementation science agenda in cancer.
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.
The Policy action group held a series of Implementation Science webinars between October 2020 and February 2021.
The Policy action group also published a commentary in Ethnicity & Disease: Policy Implementation Science - An Unexplored Strategy to Address Social Determinants of Health
The Context and Equity action group held a series of Implementation Science webinars between May 2020 and July 2021:
