Implementation Strategies Adapted for Communities Enhancing Health Equity Through a New Compilation

Event Type:
Consortium for Cancer Implementation Science
September 21, 2023
11:00 am – 12:00 pm ET

This webinar aims to discuss how implementation strategies, (methods or techniques used to move research to practice), have predominantly been operationalized and studied in healthcare settings. As a result, those in community-based public health settings are not widely using implementation strategies to integrate evidence-based cancer control interventions.

To address this gap, Dr. Laura Balis is leading a Consortium for Cancer Implementation Science-funded project to develop a new compilation of implementation strategies through researcher and practitioner input. Dr. Balis will give an overview of the project, which will be followed by a panel discussion with CCIS Action Group members. Panelists will discuss how the new compilation could be used to enhance health equity in diverse settings.
