2024 AUA OFFICE OF RESEARCH UROLOGIC ONCOLOGY RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM “Implementation Science: Translating Clinical Studies into Practice” PROJECT SUMMARY/ABSTRACT This application requests support for our annual Urologic Oncology Research Symposium during the Annual Meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA), to be held on Friday, May 3, 2024, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm in San Antonio, TX. The 2024 topic, “Implementation Science: Translating Clinical Studies into Practice,” will bring together pioneers in implementation science and clinical trials in urology to educate and foster interaction between urologists, other physicians, and researchers who manage and/or study malignant urological disorders. The symposium will bring the latest research advancements in implementation science and clinical trials in urology to the world’s largest gathering of national and international, private and academic practice, and physician scientists and researchers at all career stages as well as have immediate applicability to malignant urology research. Early-career investigators will comprise a significant proportion of the symposium presenters and audience and the poster session will provide additional scientific discourse. Proposed session topics include: 1. “Improving the conduct and efficiency of clinical trials with implementation science.” 2. “Implementing risk-aligned bladder cancer surveillance.” 3. “Improving reproductive care with implementation science” 4. “Optimizing smoking cessation treatment for patients with bladder cancer.” 5. “Facilitating evidence-based surgical practice” The Principal Investigator for this project is Christine Riordan, PhD, LCSW-C, AUA Director of Research, and the Program Planning Chairs are Shellie D. Ellis, MA, PhD, Associate Professor, University of Kansas Medical Center, and Ted Skolarus, MD, MPH, FACS, Professor of Surgery, University of Chicago. All faculty possess exemplary records in NIH research funding, mentoring trainees, and planning urology research education. The Program Chairs prioritized consideration of racial, ethnic, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, cultural, religious, age, (dis)ability, career stage, and socioeconomic backgrounds in accordance with the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement of the Research Education Conferences, and Communications Committee (RECCC). Support for this symposium will provide travel awards for approximately 20 trainees and early-career investigators.
