Dr Tom Hack: The Diffusion of Empirically Valid Interventions into Clinical Practice
Organised by Cancer Implementation Science Community of Practice
Location:Charles Perkins Centre - Johns Hopkins Drive, Camperdown
Workshop facilitated by Dr Tom Hack, Professor in the Faculties of Nursing, Medicine, and Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba, and clinical psychologist with CancerCare Manitoba
Over the past two decades, the fields of psychosocial oncology and supportive care have seen clinically effective tools as underutilized despite proven benefits to cancer patients and their families. This workshop aims to assist CoP members in developing a systematic approach to maximise the implementation of empirically valid interventions in clinical practice. This practical workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Tom Hack, Professor in the Faculties of Nursing, Medicine, and Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba, and clinical psychologist with CancerCare Manitoba. Professor Hack has worked extensively in the transfer of existing knowledge into policy and practice to reduce the burden of cancer.
This workshop is most suited to implementation researchers, health service managers, policy makers, epidemiologists, palliative care, psychosocial oncology and cancer nursing. Participants will gain insight into Professor Hack’s national programs in distress screening and palliative care and learn how to systematically identify and address critical and common barriers to the successful transfer and implementation of their own interventions.
