Research to Reality Cyber-Seminar: Bridging Research and Reality: Practice-based Evidence & Evidence-based Practice



NCI - Research to Reality - R2R: Cyber-Seminar Series

Bridging Research and Reality: Practice-based Evidence & Evidence-based Practice

Tuesday, September 11, 2012, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET

The translational gap between research and practice has long been discussed, often as a one-way street—get practitioners to recognize and use the research that is being conducted. Although this is important, equally important is the reverse—integrating practice-based evidence and context into the research conducted. We need a bridge between the two, not a pipeline.

The National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Research to Reality (R2R) September cyber-seminar will explore the need for—and the advances in—practice-based evidence and discuss the opportunities and future directions for the field. Dr. Michael Potter will provide an overview of colorectal cancer screening programs, FLU-FOBT/FLU-FIT, which use approaches grounded in evidence but that are also applicable to real-world settings. The FLU-FIT and FLU-FOBT programs allow health care providers to increase access to colorectal cancer screening by offering home tests to patients at the time of their annual flu shots. Dr. Potter will highlight the development of the programs and how practitioners in other settings might implement it in their own communities. Dr. Larry Green will serve as a discussant and explore the need to bridge research and practice-based evidence to help further advance the field of public health, in both research and practice, to improve the health of our communities.

Join us in September and learn about this exciting program and the lessons we can glean from effectively bridging research and practice. Learn how you might use these principles in your own research or community-based setting to address the health needs of your population.
