Intervening with Cancer Caregivers to Improve Patient Health Outcomes and Optimize Health Care Utilization (FOA Reissuance)
September 18, 2019
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
This webinar will provide an overview of NCI’s re-issued Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), Intervening with Cancer Caregivers to Improve Patient Health Outcomes and Optimize Health Care Utilization (Clinical Trial Optional) [PAR-19-352 (R01), PAR-19-355 (R21)]. This FOA invites applications for intervention research designed to support caregivers of adult cancer patients. Interventions supported by this FOA are intended to provide caregivers with care training, promote coping skills, and ultimately help them manage care. Outcomes of such interventions are expected to (1) optimize patient health care utilization, (2) improve caregiver well-being, and (3) improve patient physical health and psychosocial outcomes.
Following the presentation there will be a brief question and answer session. Participants are encouraged to submit questions in advance of the webinar to NCIHDRP@mail.nih.gov by Friday, September 13, 2019. Questions about individual projects will not be addressed.
This webinar will be archived on the HDRP Events webpage.
