Improving the Reach and Quality of Cancer Care in Rural Populations (R01 Clinical Trial Required)
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to reduce the burden of cancer and improve the quality of cancer care in rural areas among low-income and/or underserved populations. The FOA encourages two types of applications: (1) observational research that includes intervention pilot testing to understand and address predictors of cancer care/treatment and outcomes in rural low-income and/or underserved populations; or (2) intervention research to address known predictors of cancer care/treatment and outcomes in rural low-income and/or underserved populations. The focus for observational studies with pilot testing is understanding and addressing the predictive and/or mediating role of social determinants of health, barriers to care, and treatment. The focus for intervention research is addressing quality of care related to cancer diagnosis, treatment and/or survivorship. Most existing cancer control interventions are not ready for direct implementation and dissemination in low-income rural areas, so applications should seek to develop, adapt, implement, and test interventions.
