Evaluation Training and Technical Assistance Activities to Increase Implementation of Evidence-based Cancer Prevention and Control PROJECT SUMMARY: EVALUATION TRAINING AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE ACTIVITIES TO INCREASE IMPLEMENTATION OF EVIDENCE-BASED CANCER PREVENTION AND CONTROL The National Partners for Comprehensive Cancer Control, including the NCI, CDC, and ACS, have collaborated to support coordination, implementation, and evaluation of training and technical assistance activities to increase colorectal cancer screening and HPV vaccination among state-level teams. This project will focus on the evaluation of training and technical assistance activities as an implementation strategy to increase – or to accelerate – implementation of evidence-based cancer prevention and control. Using a collaborative approach between the National Partners and individual investigators, the team will meet to coordinate evaluation of training and technical assistance as an implementation strategy to support implementation of evidence-based approaches for cancer prevention and control and meet with state teams (via teleconference and in-person) that participated in training and technical assistance activities. Evaluation activities will be qualitative and quantitative, including analysis and interpretation of training and technical assistance approaches, partnerships, state-level teams, coordination, and other important evaluation variables. The investigators will participate in additional colorectal cancer screening and/or HPV vaccination workshops and contribute to the evaluation of training and technical assistance approaches to increase implementation of evidence-based cancer prevention and control. Understanding the role of training and technical assistance activities in supporting implementation science is a novel area of study and will inform future efforts to increase the effectiveness of implementation science. OVERALL PROJECT SUMMARY: A MULTILEVEL APPROACH TO ENERGY BALANCE AND CANCER ACROSS THE LIFE COURSE The Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC) Center at Washington University in St. Louis (TREC@WUSTL) brings together a broad base of nationally and internationally recognized investigators in their disciplinary focus areas to lead transdisciplinary research across the life course on cancer and obesity. To accomplish this, the TREC@WUSTL: • Examines energetics from the molecular to the social/environmental level to understand cancer etiology • Trains postdoctoral fellows in transdisciplinary research in a transdisciplinary environment to pursue careers in energetics and cancer • Exposes scholars from across the university and region to transdisciplinary work in obesity and cancer • Fosters scientific synergy via small-scale innovative transdisciplinary pilot projects that build on the TREC@WUSTL • Uses five cores to support center research and close the gap between energetic and cancer scientific discovery and its application in clinical practice and population-based settings The Washington University TREC Center is funded by the National Cancer Institute at NIH (U54 CA155496), Washington University, and the Siteman Cancer Center
