Implementation research explores how to translate what we have learnt through research into changes in practice that benefit everyone affected by cancer.
An important part of research is understanding how we put what we have learnt into practice. In our cancer work, as well as developing evidence about new tests and technologies of cancer detection, we are also exploring how to make it easy for health care professionals and patients to use and understand them.
We are focusing on:
• How to make sure that new ways of detecting cancer are available to everyone
• How new tests and technologies change the work of detecting cancer in primary care
• How to avoid unintended consequences of new technologies
• How to share best practice and keep positive changes going
We work with other groups in the university, like Medical Sociology and Health Experiences Research Group on Implementation research.
