Purpose

The purpose of this webinar is to inform potential applicants about a recently published Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): Centers on Telehealth Research for Cancer-Related Care. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is dedicated to advancing a national telehealth research agenda focused on improving cancer-related care and outcomes across the cancer control continuum in a rapidly changing healthcare, policy, technology, and communication environment. This Request for Applications (RFA) invites applications for P50 Research Center Grants.

With a focus on real-time patient-provider telehealth communication, Centers are expected to generate and disseminate a robust evidence base for patient-centered, sustainable telehealth models of cancer care delivery using new tools, research methods, and technologies. Each Center leverages a clinical practice network able to support multiple cancer-focused telehealth research studies, including one large-scale pragmatic trial evaluating the integration of telehealth into the cancer care delivery.

In this webinar, NCI Program Staff provides orientation and assistance to potential applicants by explaining the goals, objectives, and requirements of the FOA, and answering questions from webinar attendees. Participation in this webinar is not required for the submission of an application in response to RFA-CA-21-029, though interested investigators are encouraged to attend.
