Telehealth and Cancer: Studying Its Role in Cancer Control and Care Delivery

In 2021, NCI issued RFA-CA-21-029 with the intent to fund P50 Centers 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 webinar provided an overview of the four Cancer MoonshotSM funded centers that comprise NCI’s Telehealth Research Centers of Excellence (TRACE) and provided an opportunity for the investigative teams to describe their respective Center’s research goals.

This webinar was the final session of the 2022 DCCPS webinar series, Telehealth and Cancer: Studying Its Role in Cancer Control and Care Delivery, organized by the Behavioral Research Program and Healthcare Delivery Research Program. This series seeks to identify emergent research gaps and opportunities for the use of telehealth in cancer prevention and control.
