Research-practice partnerships enable the integration of evidence-based practices, programs, and interventions into health care and public health settings. These Implementation Science Team partnerships further highlight the different ways that DCCPS seeks to improve the health of all populations.
Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network
NCI is a federal partner with CDC on the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN). The CPCRN is a national network of academic, public health, and community partners who work together to accelerate the adoption and implementation of evidence-based cancer prevention and control strategies in communities and enhance large-scale efforts to reach underserved populations and reduce their burden of cancer. CPCRN conducts community-based, participatory cancer research across its eight network centers. NCI co-funded the CPCRN with CDC continuously from 2009 to 2019, and remains active as a federal partner in the sixth iteration of the network.
Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership
Also with CDC, the Implementation Science Team is a member of the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership (CCCNP), a collaborative group of diverse national organizations working together to build and strengthen comprehensive cancer control efforts across the nation. Through coordination and collaboration, the CCCNP assists comprehensive cancer control coalitions to develop and sustain implementation of comprehensive cancer control plans at the state, tribe, territory, US Pacific Island Jurisdiction, and local levels.
Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health
NCI also leads the NIH collaboration with AcademyHealth on the Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health. This conference helps bridge the gap between research, practice, and policy. By outlining the priorities in the field, the Science of D&I in Health Conference aims to ensure that evidence is used to inform decisions that will improve the health of individuals and communities. The 13th Annual Conference will be held virtually this year December 15–17, 2020.
