Implementation Science in Cancer

The VCCC Alliance and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre welcome members from across the alliance to launch the Implementation Science in Cancer program, through fundamental knowledge sharing, resource expectation discussions, and exploration of project ideas.

The event aims to share the Implementation Science in Cancer program’s overarching objectives, strategic alignment, and role of Associate Professor Stephanie Best, Senior Research Lead Implementation Science for both Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and the VCCC Alliance.

The program will define implementation science and the underpinning theories, models, and frameworks to establish a shared understanding. Join to explore how implementation science works in practice through case study exemplars, discuss the role of Associate Professor Best and how expectations of incorporating implementation science in research projects may be managed and met.
