NCI Community Cancer Centers Pilot Program Evaluation (NCCCP):


NCI Community Cancer Centers Pilot Program Evaluation (NCCCP)

On September 10, 2007, NCI awarded a contract to RTI International to evaluate the National Cancer Institute's Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP). This three-year pilot program consists of 10 community-based cancer centers across the country that are testing the feasibility of bringing the latest scientific advances in biospecimen collection, clinical trial accrual, and information system technology, and the highest level of innovative and evidence-based cancer care to cancer patients and survivors in their home communities. Over the next 3.5 years, RTI will be responsible for conducting comparative case studies, a cost study, and a patient survey. RTI also will provide ongoing feedback to NCI leadership on overall program development.
