Collaborative Learning

To encourage knowledge-sharing and accelerate the spread of promising practices across the world of Comprehensive Cancer Control, the GW CancerCenter has created several vehicles for collaborative learning across organizations.

Ask the Expert sessions are dynamic web-based discussion forums hosted by experts on various topics relevant to cancer control work. Small groups of 15 participants convene to ask questions, share experiences, and learn from both the expert and other peer participants.

The Mentorship Program is an intensive year-long hands-on learning experience for junior to mid-level professionals working in Comprehensive Cancer Control. Through mentoring relationships with seasoned experts and a series of seminars, mentees develop skills in core public health competency areas, complete high quality projects in cancer control, increase the use and spread of evidence-based practices, and expand professional networks.

The Technical Assistance Peer Matching program connects Comprehensive Cancer Control professionals who have questions or need help with peers who have experience. Request technical assistance by filling out a brief form, and GW Cancer Center will search a database of cancer control professionals with experience to try to find someone who can help you.
