Summary

This webinar provides an overview of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), Reducing Overscreening for Breast, Cervical, and Colorectal Cancers among Older Adults [PA-17-109External Web Site Policy (R21); PA-17-110External Web Site Policy (R01)]. The purpose of this FOA is to promote research on interventions, based in healthcare settings, designed to reduce overscreening for breast, cervical, or colorectal cancers among average-risk older adults. Overscreening older adults may be driven by factors at the individual, healthcare team, healthcare system and community organization levels. Research supported by this FOA should propose to intervene at two or more levels, and should measure outcomes at two or more levels, while accounting for interactions that occur between levels. Research supported by this FOA should enhance knowledge and consequences of overscreening to improve the health, independence, and quality of life of older adults.
