Population Health Assessment in Cancer Center Catchment Areas

Overview

HCIRB led a funding opportunity to support supplemental funding to conduct research to better characterize the populations and communities within the NCI-designated cancer center catchment areas. The initiative sought to enhance cancer centers’ capacity to acquire, aggregate, and integrate data from multiple sources, as well as plan, coordinate, and enhance catchment area analysis activities. The surveys conducted at each of the cancer centers included common demographic and behavioral measures in order to facilitate cross-site and local versus national comparisons on constructs relevant to cancer control.

The short-term goal of the supplemental funding was to support local research to better define and describe the cancer center catchment area using a multilevel population health framework. The long-term goal was to facilitate collaborations in which local area providers, public health practitioners, policymakers, and nonprofit organizations utilize data to develop or expand applied cancer control research, planning, intervention, and implementation efforts, with particular attention to local level health disparities and communication inequalities.
