The Cancer Control Implementation Science Base Camp training aspires to advance health equity by improving cancer control plan implementation. The training will provide sequential content covering the major phases of implementation including assessing context, using evidence and theories to plan implementation strategies, evaluation, facilitating change, and planning for sustainability.

Benefits of participation include:

  • Access to a facilitated, interactive virtual training and related resources developed by experts in implementation science and cancer control
  • Networking from leading researchers, thought leaders and screening practitioner experts
  • Skills application through asynchronous and live sessions 
  • Team huddles to support the creation and implementation of project plans, with guidance from facilitators to help map context, choose interventions, plan for adaptations, select strategies, evaluate, and sustain your project
  • Opportunities to engage with other teams in the Cancer Control Implementation Science Base Camp Training cohort
  • A network of colleagues sharing current challenges and lessons learned in striving to meet their cancer control goals

Each team’s intervention should be focused on one aspect of the cancer control continuum (prevention, screening, treatment, supportive care). Projects pertaining to cancer screening are especially encouraged to apply as course material highlights examples from cancer screening, however course material can be easily applied across the cancer control continuum. The GW Cancer Center will select up to ten teams to participate. Team member organizations must be located in the United States, tribes or territories to participate in the training from July-October 2022.
