Bridging the Gap: Transforming Knowledge into Action
July 8-12, 2006, Washington, DC, USA
• Influencing the culture of research to encourage participation in multidisciplinary team research, an essential element for moving scientific discoveries forward into clinical practice. • Building and retaining the translational and clinical research workforce needed now and in the future to develop and test new technologies and interventions for people with cancer and those at risk. • Improving the dissemination of research advances and new interventions to improve patient outcomes.
Results: Dr. Kripke will report on indications of new initiatives and partnerships that ultimately could influence the culture of cancer research to embrace and value team science and other collaborative cancer research; the successes and challenges of dissemination research and dissemination activities; and on the overarching issues that continue to impede progress: coordination, fiscal constraints, health care coverage, and education and communication.
