Reducing Barriers to Symptom Management and Palliative Care: The purpose of this RFA is to solicit grant applications for research directed at developing and testing interventions to reduce or overcome barriers to the delivery of appropriate symptom management and palliative care to patients suffering from disease and/or treatment- related sequelae. Historically, the cancer symptom management research community has focused largely on describing symptom prevalence and testing new interventions to ameliorate one or more symptoms. Many of these studies have shown efficacy, yet, because of a number of patient, clinician, and health system-related barriers, the larger cancer community is not adopting these findings. Research is needed to discover new or innovative way to implement evidenced based practices into routine clinical care. We must expand and accelerate our potential to address the problems of inadequate symptom management and palliative care among diverse populations in the United States. Given NCIs challenge goal of eliminating the suffering and death due to cancer by 2015, efforts must be directed to improving the delivery of treatments to prevent or ameliorate the adverse physical and psychosocial consequences associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
