COLLABORATION:

Research To Reality

September finds a plethora of content and discussions on Research to Reality!

Do you have questions about what the Affordable Care Act implementation means for your cancer control program? More than 400 people joined us for the R2R cyber-seminar with Carter Steger and Jennifer Redmond. We welcome your perspective regarding the impact of the ACA and how state and local coalitions can align their priorities and efforts to seize the opportunities and address the issues that stem from this monumental shift in health care policy and provision. View the archive and join the discussion!

Is your organization, coalition, institute or center planning a meeting for this fall? Highlight your work on R2R by submitting it to the Events calendar!

Research to Reality Cyber-Seminar Series
Reaching Smokers in the Age of Mobile Technology: Resources, Networks, and Messaging – Tuesday, October 15th, 2013, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET

Join us as we examine how networks of quitlines interact and share innovations in quitline practices. We will also explore how text messaging as a smoking cessation resource platform may be a better suited method for reaching a new generation of smokers.  More Information and Registration.

In response to the July Coalition Corner post on “small p” policy changes, Anna Notier of the Michigan Cancer Consortium shared how they initiated creative partnerships across the state to increase tobacco cessation among cancer patients. Read Anna’s post and see the resources on Research to Reality. This month’s Coalition Corner focuses on update your Comprehensive Cancer Control plans.  Have the past five years flown by too quickly? Join the discussion on Research to Reality this month!

Course overview

Evidence-based approaches (EBAs), including programs, strategies and policies, have been proven effective by research but remain underutilized by public health practitioners at community and state levels. The purpose of this interactive Learning Institute is to provide public health practitioners with the skills and knowledge to use data and resources to identify, select, and adopt or adapt EBAs for chronic disease prevention.  This training teaches participants a conceptual framework in using EBAs including programs, strategies and policies. 

Participants will be able to:

  • Use data to conduct a community assessment
  • Use and leverage data to select and adapt evidence-based approaches
  • Identify evidence-based chronic disease prevention programs, policies and strategies
  • Select, adopt and/or adapt an EBA for use in their local community
  • Develop implementation and evaluation plans for of EBAs
