This opportunity uses the R21 Exploratory/Developmental Research Grants 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.
