Nurses who work with people with cancer and who have an interest in building their research skills are encouraged to attend a free online workshop exploring Implementation Science and discussing relevant frameworks and the impact and opportunities within nurse-led research.
An initiative of the VCCC Nurse-Led Research Hub, the workshop is only open to nurses involved in the care of people with cancer.
Facilitated by Associate Professor Stephanie Best, and chaired by Dr Sharon Greaves, issues set to be covered during the workshop include introducing Implementation Science methods for exploring and addressing care gaps; the identification of key barriers and enablers; and highlights of key insights and how to address issues identified.
Associate Professor Stephanie Best is a Senior Research Lead: Implementation Science at Peter MacCallum in the Department of Health Services Research, a joint appointment with VCCC Alliance. Embedded within the Australian Genomics Health Alliance, Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, she led the implementation science research stream. Her most recent work has focused on the introduction and integration of clinical genomics and other evidence-based programs and interventions into practice.
Associate Professor Best’s implementation projects have included a variety of interventions (for example, mixed methods, discrete choice experiments, systematic reviews, a range of innovative qualitative methodologies) in a range of settings (for example, acute paediatric care, anorectal malformations, expanded reproductive carrier screening).
The free educational event runs from 2-3pm on 1 September.
