Improving the Reach and Quality of Cancer Care in Rural Populations (RFA-CA-18-026)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to reduce the burden of cancer and improve the quality of cancer care in rural areas among low-income and/or underserved populations. The FOA encourages two types of applications: 1) observational research that includes pilot testing of intervention to understand and address predictors of cancer care/treatment and outcomes in rural low-income and/or underserved populations; or 2) intervention research to address known predictors of cancer care/treatment and outcomes in rural low-income and/or underserved populations. Specifically, the focus for observational studies (with pilot testing) is understanding and addressing the predictive and/or mediating role of social determinants of health, barriers to care, and treatment; and the focus for interventional research is on addressing quality of care related to cancer diagnosis, treatment and/or survivorship. Most existing cancer control interventions are not ready for direct implementation and dissemination in low-income rural areas, so proposals should seek to develop, adapt, and/or implement, and test interventions.

(PAR-18-585)

National Institute on Aging (NIA) invites applications for pragmatic trials for dementia care in Long-term Services and Support (LTSS) settings which will: (1) be designed to address practical comparative questions faced by Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and AD-related dementia (ADRD) patients, clinicians and caregivers (both paid and unpaid); (2) include broad and diverse populations; and (3) be conducted in real-world settings. These trials are intended to produce results that can be directly adopted by healthcare providers, patients or caregivers for rapid translation.
