Projects

CPCRN’s Network Centers regularly form cross-center workgroups to investigate areas of research interest to the Network. Below is a listing and description of the Network’s current workgroup projects as well as a listing of some of those the Network has undertaken in the past, any of which may be revived if renewed interest, projects, and resources become available.

CPCRN Scholars

Purpose

The CPCRN Scholars Workgroup strives to educate students, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty, practitioners, and others in dissemination and implementation (D&I) science focused on cancer prevention and control and health equity. Scholars will be provided with opportunities to engage in mentored projects with workgroups that most align with their interests. Scholars will have different tracks to follow, but an educational component covering core competencies also is required. Through a formalized process, it is our hope that we can increase: the depth and breadth of the Scholars’ connectedness within the CPCRN network, the cancer research pipeline, and applied dissemination and implementation work in academic and clinical settings.

Health Equity & Social Determinants of Health

Purpose

The CPCRN Health Equity Workgroup provides guidance to the CPCRN Network on the development and application of a health equity framework that integrates participatory and social determinants of health approaches to cancer prevention and control.  Through our engagement with all CPCRN Centers, we will assess and disseminate best practices of the use of a health equity framework to reduce the cancer burden and disparities across diverse populations served by the CPCRN Network.  Collaborative activities include an environmental scan of CPCRN Network approaches to advance health equity and reduce cancer disparities, identification of measures to guide the Network and others in evaluating cancer prevention and control research within a health equity lens, and dissemination of our collective impact to advance health equity.

Organizational Theory for Implementation Science

Purpose

To increase awareness of organizational determinants of EBI implementation and their incorporation into research studies, the Organizational Theory for Implementation Science project seeks to review organization theory, extract and synthesize central constructs, understand its impact on EBI implementation, and translate those constructs into disseminable tools that can be used to guide implementation science research and practice.

Rural Cancer (CPCRN5)

Purpose

The CPCRN Rural Cancer Workgroup, first established in 2018 will continue to explore issues related to cancer prevention, control, and treatment in rural areas. During the first year, the workgroup will focus on documenting the integration of rural-relevant data and goals in state cancer control plans and will define a study using existing cancer data to assess the impact of rurality and place-specific contextual factors on a cancer-related outcome. The workgroup will continue to solicit study proposals that reflect the interests of the group members.

Quality Improvement/Implementation Science/Technical Assistance (QUISTA)

Purpose

CPCRN centers provide training, technical assistance, and other implementation support strategies to a wide range of clinical and public health practice settings. This work group will study how these implementation support strategies impact practice settings, with a focus on quality improvement processes for integrating cancer prevention and control interventions into routine care.

Survivorship

Purpose

The purpose of the Cancer Survivorship Workgroup is to advance collaborations and promote interdisciplinary research that supports cancer survivorship.  We have defined survivorship as follows: An individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis, through the balance of his or her life. There are many types of survivors, including those living with cancer and those free of cancer. This term is meant to capture a population with a history of cancer rather than to provide a label that may or may not resonate with individuals.  Areas of interest include health after cancer, a wide range of populations of interest (pediatrics to older adults) and topics such as financial toxicity.

Multiple Cancer Screening (CPCRN4)

Purpose

The Multiple Cancer Screening Workgroup grew out of the question:  how can we make cancer preventive services easier for people to access and use? Thus we are looking at a cancer screening(s) paired with any kind of preventive service, be it gynecologic or flu vaccine, etc.

Our workgroup has been focused on a conducting a scoping review to answer the research question, ‘What is the structure, content, and impact of bundled cancer screening programs?’

Implementing Evidence into Action Workgroup

Purpose

Evidence-based interventions (EBIs) continue to be underused in community programs and practices. The purpose of this workgroup is to develop, test, and refine training and technical assistance strategies with the goal of building community planners’ capacity to select, adapt, and implement evidence-based interventions. The training and technical assistance strategies will be tested with grantees of the Knight Cancer Institute’s Community Partnership Program, through which the Knight has made a 10-year commitment to provide $1 million annually for community-based cancer prevention in Oregon. Participating CPCRN centers also will have the opportunity to test the training and technical assistance strategies locally or in other cross-center projects.
