Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer death in the
United States. A growing body of evidence indicates that the number of
individuals dying of colorectal cancer could be greatly reduced through
appropriate screening. Although there is now general agreement that average-
risk adults aged 50 and older should be screened for colorectal cancer,
national survey data show that less than half of eligible adults have ever
been screened for this disease. Primary care practice is an important point
of entry for colorectal cancer screening. The National Cancer Institute and
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality are interested in promoting
research to improve colorectal cancer screening delivery, utilization, and
outcomes in primary care practice. The objective of this Program Announcement
is to encourage health services, social and behavioral, and outcomes
researchers to develop innovative research projects to increase the knowledge
base for enhanced translation of effective colorectal cancer screening
techniques into community practice. Both R21 and R01 projects will be
supported by this program.
