Oct 9, 2024

Based on research topic, choose the appropriate contact from the NOSI or the related announcement.


This opportunity is a Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) for research to understand and address the full spectrum of factors that contribute to disparities in survivorship care, healthcare utilization, and health outcomes among childhood cancer survivors.

Proposed projects must:

  1. Focus on survivors of childhood cancers (diagnosed prior to the age of 19)
  2. Address factors contributing to disparities in survivorship care and outcomes that extend beyond the individual (such as survivors, caregivers, and clinicians) level to include healthcare teams, healthcare systems, community, and policy-level factors
  3. Include populations commonly experiencing disparities based on race or ethnicity, sex, sexual or gender minority status, insurance status, rural residence, socioeconomic disadvantage, or other demonstrated differences

Examples of projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Assess healthcare team, healthcare system, community, payer, and policy level factors or practices that result in inequities such as disparities in long-term follow-up care
  • Develop and test novel methods for identifying barriers to survivorship care delivery using data elements available in the medical record, administrative datasets, surveys, and/or interviews
  • Evaluate multilevel interventions that promote guideline-concordant survivorship care for childhood cancer survivors
  • Develop and test multilevel interventions to mitigate barriers that contribute to disparities in health outcomes for childhood cancer survivors
  • Characterize barriers to behavioral health, tobacco cessation, or alcohol reduction interventions for childhood cancer survivor populations that experience health disparities
