World Cancer Day 2018 - Goodwill Message and Press Release

World Cancer Day 2018: Goodwill Message from SOCRON.

Press Release on WCD 2018.


Applications due in two weeks for the TIDIRC (Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer) Training

Application period open through February 9, 2018 12pm ET!

One of the most critical issues impeding improvements in the health of people across the cancer control continuum today is the enormous gap between what we know can optimize health and what gets implemented in everyday practice. The science of dissemination and implementation (D&I) seeks to address this gap by understanding how best to ensure that evidence-based strategies to improve health and prevent disease are effectively delivered in clinical and public health practice.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) is hosting this training institute to provide participants with a thorough grounding in conducting D&I research with a specific focus on cancer, across the cancer control continuum. In 2018, the institute will utilize a combination of a 4-month online course (six modules with related assignments) between March 15 and June 29, 2018, and a 2-day in-person training to be held July 9 and 10, 2018, in Bethesda, MD. Faculty and guest lecturers will consist of leading experts in theory, implementation science in cancer, and evaluation approaches to D&I; creating partnerships and multilevel, transdisciplinary research teams; research design, methods, and analyses appropriate for D&I; and conducting research at different and multiple levels of intervention (e.g., clinical, community, policy). This training institute has been adapted from the broader Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (TIDIRH), organized by NIH and the VA over the past seven years
This training is designed for investigators at any career stage interested in conducting D&I research with a focus on the cancer control continuum. There is no cost associated with the training. Invited participants are required to cover related travel expenses to the Washington D.C. area for the in-person meeting. More answers to common questions can be found on the site FAQ

The International Union Against Cancer (UICC) has officially launched the 2018 World Cancer Congress (WCC) preliminary programme and call for abstracts. Almost 90 multidisciplinary sessions staging more than 400 speakers from about 80 countries have been handpicked for their innovative practice in cancer implementation science to create the preliminary programme of this year’s Congress.

This brings together leading organisations in research, clinical practices, epidemiology, policy recommendation, women’s cancers, public health and primary care interventions, patient engagement and survivorship, cancer delivery and resource management, and more. Submission of abstract papers featuring your successful advocacy / fundraising campaign or scientific study is open until 31 March, 2018
For registration and submission of abstract, see details.


Applications Open for the 2018 Long-term International Fellowship (LIFe)

The Conquer Cancer Foundation of ASCO Long-term International Fellowship is a one-year, $115,000 grant that provides early-career oncologists in low- to middle-income countries the support and resources needed to advance their training in the United States, Canada, or the European Union.

Following the fellowship, recipients return to their home institution and use the training and experience from the fellowship to effect change in cancer care in their home country. Applications are due January 19, 2018, at 11:59 PM (EST).
