Multilevel Interventions in Health Care: Presentation by Muin Khoury, MD, PhD
Multilevel Interventions in Health Care: Building the Foundation for Future Research Goals
Multilevel Research and the Challenges of Implementing Genomic Medicine Lead author: Muin Khoury, MD, PhD (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
Advances in genomics and related fields, promise a new era of personalized medicine in the cancer care continuum. Nevertheless, there are fundamental challenges in integrating genomics into current cancer practice. This paper explores how multilevel research can contribute to evaluation, implementation and dissemination of genomic medicine. The paper synthesizes existing information in a framework of multilevel intervention methodology and makes recommendations for future research on the integration of genomic medicine into the cancer care continuum.
The research conference sponsored by the National Cancer Institute assembled health care researchers, clinicians, and administrators to discuss the importance of multilevel approaches to improving health care quality in the United States. It occurred over two days and was associated with the American Society for Preventive Oncology's (ASPO) annual meeting in March of 2011.
This presentation is one of 13 research papers. The conference offered platforms for participant discussion and engagement regarding the opportunities and challenges of multilevel intervention research.
