Cooperative Planning Grant for Cancer Disparities Research Partnerships (CDRP) Program

CRCHD supports a Patient Navigation component for increasing enrollment in appropriate cancer clinical trials as part of the Cooperative Planning Grant for Cancer Disparities Research Partnership (CDRP) Program, which is conducted through the NCI Radiation Research Program. This 5-year clinical trials program, initially funded in 2002, provides support and resources for radiation oncology research in institutions that care for a disproportionate number of medically underserved, low-income, and racial and ethnic minority populations. Each CDRP project provides a trained, culturally competent individual to assist cancer patients in navigating through their radiation oncology care and accessing clinical trials, as appropriate.
