Leaning into research: Empowering Careers, Mentoring, and Collaborative Advocacy

Tuesday, October 17th, 12PM - 1:15PM ET


Co-Sponsored by the APOS Research Committee and APOS Mentoring Committee, Jamie Jacobs & Tim Sannes

Presenters: Lori Wiener and Natalie McAndrew: Building a bridge between clinical practice and psychosocial research, Tim Sannes: Career Advancement and Negotiating Support for Research, Alexandra Zaleta: Research Collaboration with Community and Advocacy Partners

Q&A: Hosted by Lindsey Wamsley, Alternate Paths to Research

Learning Objectives

1. By the end of the presentation, the learner will be able to name two strategies to initiate a research project in clinical practice setting or if you are already an experienced researcher, you will learn two strategies to support a mentee who may be initiating a research project in a clinical practice setting. 

2. Participants will be able to identify at least one strategy for negotiating support for research and recognize what other researchers report as barriers early in their career. 

3. Participants shall be able to describe at least two benefits of community-engaged research

Whether you’re starting out your career, mid-career, or pivoting toward more scholarly pursuits, getting research off the ground can be tough. This webinar – co-sponsored by the APOS Research Committee and APOS Mentoring Committee - seeks to provide practical guidance on how to cultivate a thriving research program: from getting started on a new research project and incorporating it into your clinical practice, to negotiating for protected research time, to expanding your research lens to include community and advocacy partners.  We will conclude with a Q&A session, that broadly discusses “alternative paths to research.” There should be valuable take-aways for seasoned researchers or junior investigators alike!

Practical Strategies for Engaging, Supporting, and Integrating Cancer Caregivers

Tuesday, November 28th, 2PM - 3PM ET


Presenters: Erin Kent, Margaret Longacre, Heidi Donovan, and Kelly Tan

Q&A: Hosted by Lyndsey Wallace

Learning Objectives

1. Summarize the needs of caregivers of cancer patients in the U.S. throughout the cancer care continuum.
2. Describe two initiatives for providing caregivers more support throughout the cancer care continuum that cancer centers could implement.
3. List at least one strategy for implementing a small, low-cost support strategy for caregivers in cancer centers.

Cancer caregivers, those supporting a family member or friend with cancer, are essential members of a patient’s support system. Awareness about the need to recognize and engage caregivers as a member of patient’s care team is increasing. A 2017 landscape survey of the NCI Community Oncology Research Program found that 64% of practices that responded to the survey reported having supportive care services for caregivers (Nightingale et al., Cancer, 2021). However, best practices for engaging caregivers are often locally developed and rarely shared between institutions. The purpose of this webinar is to provide an overview of lessons learned from two cancer caregiver support programs and examples of ways that cancer centers have engaged, supported, and integrated caregivers.
