Abstract:
Session presented on Friday, July 25, 2014: The development of a successful career requires passion, persistence, teamwork, and mentorship. In my research career, I have focused on reducing disparities in the early detection of cancer among the poor, elderly, underserved and/or minorities. Cancer is a deadly disease that kills many people worldwide, yet the irony is that for certain cancers, early detection can lead to a complete cure and lives saved. Through the testing of targeted and tailored interventions, my team has moved from efficacy testing to testing dissemination and implementation designs. The use of rigorous models of cultural targeting and individual tailoring of education can enhance relevance, effect, and sustained impact. Nurses are ideally placed to lead translational efforts through dissemination and implementation. In addition to describing my research journey, in this session, I will address designs, models, and readiness for translational research and strategies for career development and mentoring.
