Dr Margaret Barton-Burke - Memorial Sloan Ketting Cancer Center, New York, USA

Dr Margaret Barton-Burke speaks to ecancer at ONS 2019 about how implementation science is bridging the gap between research and clinical practice to improve patient care.

She explains how her own research with long-term breast cancer survivors - specifically with black women, where there is a disparity in survivorship when compared to white women - has been applied. She urges oncology nurses to read the literature closely as well critically, so to determine whether it is a practice change suitable to their institution.

Dr Barton-Burke concludes by explaining the importance of not only translating science into practice, but also translating it in to terms that the patient can understand.
