The goal of the NCI Multilevel Intervention research initiative is to expand the scientific base of multilevel interventions in cancer care as well as other health conditions. The research initiative is relevant to multiple audiences interested in interventions within a health care context:
- Health services, community, and clinical researchers may find particular interest in the discussion of the state of the science of multilevel intervention research, opportunities to advance such research, and measurement and analytic approaches.
- Public health practitioners will value its broad perspective and diverse examples—encompassing cancer control, chronic disease care, genomics, and prevention.
- Clinicians will appreciate its emphasis on real-world contextual factors, implementation issues, and sustainability, as well as its coverage of pragmatic trials and partnerships.
- Health care administrators will value the focus on time as a consideration in the evaluation of effects, as well as attention to implementation matters concerning the Health Care Affordability Act of 2010.
