Oral Anticancer Agents: Utilization, Adherence, and Health Care Delivery

The Behavioral Research Program, Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program, and Healthcare Delivery Research Program of the National Cancer Institute’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences have collaborated on the release of a program announcement to study the utilization, adherence, and delivery of oral anticancer agents.  Specifically, this program announcement encourages research grant applications to:

  1. Assess and describe the current state of oral anticancer medication utilization, delivery, and adherence; 
  2. Identify structural, systemic, and psychosocial barriers to adherence; and 
  3. Develop models and strategies to improve safe and effective delivery of these agents so that clinical outcomes are optimized.
