Pre-Application Webinar for Accelerating Colorectal Cancer Screening and follow-up through Implementation Science (ACCSIS)

This webinar will provide a brief overview and answer questions related to two companion NCI Funding Opportunity Announcements: Accelerating Colorectal Cancer Screening and follow-up through Implementation Science (ACCSIS) (UG3/UH3) RFA-CA-17-038External Web Site Policy and Accelerating Colorectal Cancer Screening and follow-up through Implementation Science (ACCSIS) Coordinating Center (U24) RFA-CA-17-039External Web Site Policy. This purpose of this FOA is to promote research in colorectal cancer (CRC) screening, follow-up, and referral-to-care among target populations for whom screening rates are below national standards.

About the RFAs:

This purpose of these FOAs is to promote research in colorectal cancer (CRC) screening, follow-up, and referral-to-care among target populations for whom screening rates are below national standards. This research will provide an evidence base for multilevel interventions that increase rates of CRC screening, follow-up, and referral-to-care, and best practices for how multilevel interventions can be scaled-up to reduce the burden of colorectal cancer on the United States (U.S.) population.

The ACCSIS Program will support UG3/UH3 phased award research projects and a U24 Coordinating Center. The UG3/UH3 projects must apply for both the UG3 and UH3 phases together in the single application. The UG3 effort is to be used for the development of one-year, milestone-driven planning phase (UG3), with possible rapid transition to the second phase (UH3) for clinical trials. The ACCSIS Coordinating Center will facilitate coordination across the ACCSIS Research Projects (UG3/UH3); provide administrative support to the ACCSIS Program; assist with identification and collection of common data elements; support the evaluation of locally-developed innovative approaches to increase CRC screening, follow-up, and referral-to-care rates; and develop and coordinate data sharing plans.
