CPCRN Members Contribute to New NCI Implementation Science Text

Several CPCRN members contributed to a new National Cancer Institute (NCI) text, Advancing the Science of Implementation across the Cancer Continuum, published in November 2018. The book is the first text of its kind to focus on the intersection of implementation science and cancer, and provides a broad synthesis of relevant research studies as well as detailed case studies illustrating each topic area.


Description: While many effective interventions have been developed with the potential to significantly reduce morbidity and mortality from cancer, they are of no benefit to the health of populations if they cannot be delivered. In response to this challenge, Advancing the Science of Implementation across the Cancer Continuum provides an overview of research that can improve the delivery of evidence-based interventions in cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and survivorship. Chapters explore the field of implementation science and its application to practice, a broad synthesis of relevant research and case studies illustrating each cancer-focused topic area, and emerging issues at the intersection of research and practice in cancer. Both comprehensive and accessible, this book is an ideal resource for researchers, clinical and public health practitioners, medical and public health students, and health policymakers.
