Cyber-Seminar: Bridging Cancer Research and Clinical Practice
The September 11 NCI Research to Reality (R2R) cyber-seminar will address the gap between cancer research and practice, as well as the need to integrate practice-based evidence into research. Participants will explore the need for, and the advances in, the field of practice-based evidence.
Dr. Michael Potter will provide an overview of the FLU-FOBT and FLU-FIT colorectal cancer screening programs, which use approaches that are grounded in evidence. FLU-FIT and FLU-FOBT programs increase access to colorectal cancer screening by offering home tests to patients when they come in for their annual flu shots. Dr. Potter will describe how the programs were developed and how practitioners in other settings might implement them in their own communities.
Dr. Larry Green will explore the need to use practice-based evidence in research to help advance public health research and practice to improve the health of our communities.
