The NCI's Cancer Information Service's Research Continuum Framework
Fleisher, L., Kornfeld, J., Davis, S., Morra, M. E., & Squiers, L. (2007). The NCI's Cancer Information Service's Research Continuum Framework: Integrating research into cancer education practice (1999-2004). Journal of Cancer Education, 22(Suppl 1), S41-S48.
Between 1999 and 2004, the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Cancer Information Service's (CIS) Research Initiative supported over 50 research projects representing a broad range of activities from research capacity building, development, implementation to diffusion and dissemination. These research activities are represented in the CIS Research Continuum Framework which the authors describe through a number of short case studies. Based on the experiences and successes of the CIS, other professionals working in the cancer field might consider establishing collaborative relationships across the research continuum and participating in research that has relevancy to advances in cancer education.
