This case study webinar will give you a practical overview of how A/Prof Chris Paul and colleagues have developed and are undertaking an implementation science research project ‘Pathways to Smoking Care Implementation Project (P-SCIP), funded by the Cancer Institute NSW Implementation Working Group. The objective of this research project is to assist in building health system capacity for achieving routine clinician delivery of smoking cessation care for cancer patients in NSW.

The following lessons learned will be illustrated with examples from the project:

Identifying your own (often invalid) assumptions as you start and along the way
The importance of understanding complex patient journeys from multiple user perspectives
Identifying unexpected gaps in knowledge and skills
Filling these gaps rapidly with as much evidence and credibility as possible
Examples of mixed methods for small-scale evaluation of implementation projects

​Join Chris as she shares her tips of the trade and useful take home lessons which you can apply to your own implementation research, plus ask her your questions in the Q&A session.

​Ideal for:
- Early-mid career researchers with an interest in implementation science research
- Professionals working in a clinical setting, particularly cancer patient care
- Members with an interest in implementation science research
