It is estimated that the economic burden of cancer in the United States in
2002 was equivalent to $172 billion, including $61 billion in direct medical
expenditures. As cancer survival improves and as the U.S. population ages,
it is likely that the economic aspects of cancer will loom larger in policy
discussions. Over the coming decades the U.S. health care system, including
public sector programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, will face the challenge
of covering an increasing array of health care procedures and services with
fiscal resources that are limited by global budget constraints. Under these
circumstances, there will be increased need for understanding how economic
resources are used across the cancer continuum, from prevention through end-
of-life care, and in the context of different organizational settings, for
careful economic evaluation of conventional and innovative cancer control
interventions and for a better understanding of how economic factors
influence the welfare of cancer patients, and decision process about the use
of cancer prevention, screening and treatment interventions. These are the
types of issues addressed by this Program Announcement.

The Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS), National
Cancer Institute (NCI), and the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality
(AHRQ), invite investigator-initiated grant applications for research
directed at increasing the knowledge base in the area of the economic aspects
of cancer prevention, screening and care. The goal of this program
announcement is to generate new economic knowledge that will promote the
optimal design of cancer prevention and control trial studies and
interventions and will facilitate the formulation of effective health care
policy related to cancer prevention and control. NCI has an interest in
economic and health services studies with particular emphasis on meeting the
goals of the NCI Quality of Cancer Care Initiative (see
http://plan.cancer.gov/public/quality.htm). This Program Announcement (PA)
also relates to the general health services and outcomes and effectiveness
research supported by the AHRQ for a wide range of clinical conditions,
including cancer. The overall goal of this Initiative is to enhance the
state-of-the-science on the quality of cancer care and inform federal
decision making on care delivery, coverage, and regulation. This initiative
requests research applications on new methods development, the synthesis and
extension of existing methods, and innovative data gathering strategies.
Applications that propose to implement actual data collection on a pilot or
full-scale basis as well as analytical studies that use existing data and
methodology may also be submitted.
