The Role of Health Policy and Health Insurance in Improving Access to and Performance of Cancer Prevention, Early Detection and Treatment Services

Logo for the American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is accepting proposals for research projects that have the potential to generate new knowledge of the effects of the United States healthcare system on both access to and outcomes of cancer screening, early detection, and treatment services. ACS is keenly interested in supporting rapid-learning research on the effects of health policy changes on patients, providers, and health systems. This includes but is not limited to facilitators and barriers to care, unintended consequences, differential experiences of and outcomes for patients seeking or receiving care, best practice models for quality care and economic impact.

Not to exceed $200,000 per year for up to four years, awards are open to independent investigators of all stages of their career.

Deadlines for proposals are April 1 and October 15, 2019.
