NCI Dissemination and Implementation Research for Cancer Control in Africa | Thurs 19 November | Hotel Atlas Medina Spa

One of the most critical issues impeding improvements in public health today is the enormous gap between our knowledge of strategies that can optimize health promotion and disease prevention and what actually gets implemented. Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) is a field of inquiry that investigates the process for bringing solutions from biomedical and healthcare research to broader public health practice and policy. The field of D&I research is growing; however, there remains a need to expand the cadre of both new and established scientists. This workshop is designed to provide an introduction to the field of D&I, and lay the groundwork for developing D&I research proposals. For more information, including how to register, see here.
