Join us for our next Advanced Topics in Implementation Science webinar hosted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Control & Population Sciences (DCCPS) Implementation Science Team.Since kicking off our ‘fireside chat’ format in late 2016, we have been joined by all manner of leading experts, collaborators, mid-career investigators, and colleagues to discuss funding, training, growth in the field, global collaborations, priority areas, and the role of Implementation Science at NCI. In 2019, we are looking to have more engaged discussion around significant, but often times underrepresented topics in implementation science. One of these areas is the influence of health economics on implementation science. While cost of implementation has long been a key outcome within theoretical models of implementation, limited inclusion of health economics concepts in many of our projects may impede the ability of IS findings to fully inform policy and practice decisionmakers. Drawing from the lead authors on health economics chapters in two recent edited volumes (Advancing the Science of Implementation across the Cancer Continuum and Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health), we will focus our discussion on the role of economic evaluation and cost effectiveness in implementation science. On Thursday, January 24, 2019, 2:00-3:00pm ET, Dr. David Chambers will be joined by Dr. Heather Gold, NYU Langone Health and Dr. Ramesh Raghavan, Rutgers University to discuss progress in attending to health economics within implementation studies and next steps for the field.

Registration is required.
