Research to Reality Cyber-Seminar: The Adaptation Effect: Engaging Community Partners to Adapt and Implement Evidence-based Interventions

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

The Adaptation Effect: Engaging Community Partners to Adapt and Implement Evidence-based Interventions

Tuesday, November 13, 2012, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.ET

Join us in November as we continue the exploration of practice-based evidence and how it can inform your own community’s efforts to engage partners in the adaptation of evidence-based interventions.

In the final session of a three-part series, the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Research to Reality (R2R) November cyber-seminar will highlight three of the R2R Mentorship Program projects that are working with community partners to adapt and implement evidence-based interventions. Kiameesha Evans is adapting and implementing the diet and nutrition program, Body and Soul, to include a physical activity component and is piloting the intervention with several faith-based organizations in New Jersey. Venice Haynes has partnered with a local foundation to provide technical assistance in the adaptation of a cervical cancer program, Con Amor Aprendemos (With Love We Learn), for African American faith-based communities in Atlanta. Finally, Charlene Mitchell adapted a sun safety program, Pool Cool, for implementation at rural Idaho public pools. Kiameesha, Venice, and Charlene will each share an overview of their projects, outcomes, and lessons learned about partnership, adaptation, and implementation relevant to other communities and researchers interested in these types of cancer control interventions. If you missed the previous cyber-seminars on practice-based evidence and the R2R Mentorship Program, you can watch the archives.
