Dialogue on Dissemination: A Practitioner Perspective
Tuesday, November 16, 2010, 2:003:00 p.m. ET
Disseminating evidence-based programs and policies requires that researchers, policy makers, and practitioners take active roles in the process. While their perspectives, systems, and practices vary, their goal remains the same: to reduce the burden of disease and move from "research to reality."
Dialogue on Dissemination: A Practitioner Perspective is the final session in a series of three discussions that engage stakeholders across the dissemination continuum. In this series, researchers, policy makers, and cancer control practitioners highlight promising approaches and address barriers to implementing evidence-based programs and policies.
This month, five practitioners will lead a discussion on the skills public health practitioners need in order to effectively “bridge the gap” from research into practice. Dr. Andrea Caracostis with the HOPE Clinic, Ms. Hope Krebill with the Midwest Cancer Alliance, Ms. Hali Robinett with the Cancer Research Center of Hawaii, Ms. Ginny Thompson Kirklin with the Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and Ms. Karen Tso with the HOPE Clinic's Phoenix Project will provide a practitioner’s perspective to the dissemination discussion and highlight their experiences using research findings to help change practice.
At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the challenges faced at the community level to move evidence-based programs into practice.
- Discuss the skills public health practitioners need in order to effectively “bridge the gap” from research into practice.
