Project Details

Description

The proposed Program Project will develop and evaluate culturally tailored
cancer control interventions to increase the use of early cancer detection
in five ethnic groups in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. The program
is administered from the Northern California Cancer Center whose consortial
structure encompasses a multi-disciplinary group of affiliated
investigators. The target populations reflect the ethnic heterogeneity of
this region. The research approach begins from a common Pathways to
Screening Framework in which we view the successful adoption of early
cancer detection as a continuum starting from basic knowledge and attitudes
to the procedural and organizational aspects of the delivery process
itself. The proposed projects have leadership from their targeted ethnic
groups and focus on aspects of the Pathway that will have the greatest
impact on screening behavior based on the investigator's research
experience and knowledge of the community. The six projects are: 1. Pathways to Early Cancer Detection for Hispanics.
2. Pathways to Early Cancer Detection for Vietnamese.
3. Pathways to Early Cancer Detection for African Americans.
4. Pathways to Early Cancer Detection of Cervical Cancer for a Multi-
Ethnic, Indigent, Emergency Department Population.
5. Pathways to Early Cancer Detection for Chinese Americans.
6. Pathways to Early Cancer Detection for Urban Women. The first three individual projects are extensions of currently NCI-funded
cancer control research; the last two are developmental projects.
Synergistic aspects of the Program Project, in addition to our use of a
common research framework and theme, include the cross-project functions of
three central cores in Administration, Cross-Cultural Studies, and
Biostatistics and Data Management, the use of the Survey Research Center of
the University of California for all major surveys, a coordinated
instrument development process, the use of common core questions which will
provide a rich database for cross-cultural studies, and common data
management and analytic procedures. We anticipate that the proposed research will have immediate application to
the NCI's Goal for the Year 2000 and that the culturally tailored
interventions and educational materials will benefit similar populations in
other areas of the country.
