Pre-Application Webinar for RFA-CA-21-029, Centers on Telehealth Research for Cancer-Related Care (P50 Clinical Trial Required)

April 29, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST


In this webinar, NCI Program Staff will provide orientation and assistance to potential applicants by explaining the goals, objectives, and requirements of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): Centers on Telehealth Research for Cancer-Related Care. This Request for Applications (RFA) invites applications for P50 Research Center Grants.

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. 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 will leverage 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. 

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. 

Following the presentation there will be a brief question and answer session.  Participants may submit questions in advance of the webinar to by Friday, April 23, 2021.  Questions about individual projects will not be addressed during this webinar.
