Do you have a cancer implementation research idea that's in its early stages of development?
We can assist with its development through our online Concept Development Workshops (CDWs).
We are holding a series of online CDWs, with the first scheduled for Friday, 25 September 2020 @ 11am-12:30pm. Our second and third online workshops will be held in October and November.
One concept will be discussed per an online CDW.
Please submit your cancer implementation concept by COB Monday 24 August 2020 if you would like it to be considered for our first online CDW in September. If your concept is not selected for the first CDW, it may be considered for subsequent CDWs.
The Cancer Implementation Science Community of Practice will support the development of presented concepts with the understanding that the investigator intends the project to be a collaborative study. Therefore, by accepting an invitation to the workshop, the investigator undertakes to:
Who can apply?
This workshop is open to all cancer related projects, but priority will be given to concepts submitted by Translational Cancer Research Centre (TCRC) members. If you have yet to join a TCRC please see https://www.cancer.nsw.gov.au/data-research/translational-cancer-research/funded-centres to find out more about the TCRCs and check your eligibility to join. If you would like implementation science support, please completed this [application form].
The selection process:
Submissions will be reviewed by representatives from the ‘Cancer Implementation Science Help Team’.
Submissions will be considered based on:
What will you get out of submitting a concept?
If your concept is selected you will receive multiple rounds of feedback from our expert panel. The concept will go through an initial review stage, feedback will be given to you for refinement, then the revised version will be discussed at our online CDW where further feedback will be given.
Who can attend?
Successful investigators and members of their proposed research team will be invited to attend the workshop.

Nicole's presentation "Implementation of a lung cancer multidisciplinary team standardized template for reporting to general practitioners: a mixed methods study" was very well received, showcasing how a lung cancer MDT supports GPs to be kept well informed of the care their patients are receiving, enabling GPs to provide continuous care for their patients undergoing cancer treatment in a timely and transparent manner. As a result of the brilliant work and evaluation, MDTs in other streams wish to take up this approach for themselves.
Nicole is Senior Research Fellow at Cancer Council NSW, and her research was funded by Cancer Australia working with Sydney Catalyst TCRC, Gemma Collett, Clare Brown, Tim Shaw, Kahren White, Philip Beale, Lyndal Trevena, Cleola Anderiesz, and David Barnes.

The SOLD OUT 2018 PhD Careers Event was a massive hit with over 90+ people signed up to attend to connect and chat with leaders across industry, business, research, and the public sector about how they made it to the top.
Speakers shared their career pathway and top tips to help our PhD candidates and those recently awarded identify and carve a path towards an exciting future in the cancer research space.
Due to such overwhelming demand and excellent feedback from participants, we are now exploring holding a full day event in mid-2019..... watch this space if you're sorry to have missed out this year.
