This opportunity uses the R01 Research Project Grant funding mechanism.
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) aims to stimulate research to evaluate the effect of care planning on cancer survivors’ health and psycho-social outcomes; self-management of late effects and adherence to cancer screening and health behaviour guidelines; utilisation of follow-up care; organisational-level factors influencing the implementation of care planning; and associated costs.
Specifically, the FOA aims to stimulate research that will:
- develop and test metrics for evaluating the impact of survivorship care planning;
- evaluate the impact of survivorship care planning on cancer survivors’ morbidity, self-management and adherence to care recommendations, utilisation of follow-up care, and on systems outcomes, such as associated costs and impact on organizations implementing care planning; and
- identify models and processes of care that promote effective survivorship care planning.
The ultimate goal of this FOA is to generate a body of science that will inform the development and delivery of interventions and best practices in follow-up care for cancer survivors.
