This training is designed for investigators at any career stage interested in conducting Dissemination & Implementation (D&I) research with a focus on the cancer continuum. To be eligible, participants must NOT have matriculated through other National Institue of Health supported implementation science training programs (e.g. Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health, Mentored Training for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer , Implementation Research Institute ). To be eligible, participants must NOT have current R18, R01, or R01-equivalent funding as a Principal Investigator for D&I research and may not have received such funding in the past 5 years. Note: Investigators who have received an R01 or equivalent are eligible, if the funding was not specifically for D&I research. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate experience with—or potential for—working effectively in transdisciplinary teams and who have strong partnerships with—or are embedded within—health care delivery, public health, or community-based networks. We seek a balance of both junior and senior investigators, with the overall goal of bringing new people into the field of D&I research. While we anticipate that most participants will be early- to mid-career individuals, we will enroll a limited number of senior researchers who are making the switch to D&I research.
In addition, to be eligible, participants must meet all the following criteria:
