Case Studies to Explore Interventions that Support, Build, and Provide Legacy Awareness for Young Breast Cancer Survivors—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
Young breast cancer survivors (YBCS, defined as women diagnosed with breast cancer under 45 years old) may have a more difficult time coping with breast cancer treatment and aftercare when compared to older breast cancer survivors. As a result of the Young Women's Breast Health Education and Awareness Requires Learning Young (EARLY) Act, CDC established Funding Opportunity Announcement, DP11-1111, Developing Support and Educational Awareness for Young (< 45 years of age) Breast Cancer Survivors in the United States. Subsequently, CDC awarded a three-year cooperative agreement to seven organizations that demonstrated a capacity to (1) reach YBCS, health care providers, and caregivers/families, (2) implement interventions that seek to provide support services, and (3) develop educational communication and awareness resources to support YBCS.
Other establishments within the U.S., such as local and national not-for-profit organizations and academic institutions, implement similar YBCS-focused interventions without funding from CDC's DP11-1111 cooperative agreement. Although these entities are not funded through CDC, they plan, develop, and employ similar tools, strategies, and interventions to reach or benefit these targeted young cancer-survivor populations.
CDC proposes to conduct exploratory case studies of organizations that provide support services and/or educational resources to YBCS, health care providers, and/or caregivers/families. Each selected organization will serve as a unique case and the unit of analysis. Information will be collected from up to 12 organizations: seven case studies will be conducted with organizations that receive funding through CDC's DP11-1111 cooperative agreement, and up to five case studies will be conducted with other organizations that are implementing similar YBCS-focused activities and interventions but do not receive funding under DP11-1111.
Case studies are intended to serve as an exploration of implementation activities, as well as to provide the context for implementation. Information Start Printed Page 8722will be collected during a single site visit to each selected organization to conduct on-site observations and in-depth interviews (IDI) with each organization's key informants, such as Principal Investigators, Program Managers, Program Staff, and Program Partners. IDIs will last 1-2 hours each. Case study findings will help CDC to identify areas in which CDC can build upon existing and emerging efforts to provide support services and educational resources to YBCS, highlight barriers and facilitating factors to implementing interventions targeting YBCS, determine the added value of providing the DP11-1111 cooperative agreement (e.g., funding, technical assistance) to various entities, identify lessons learned that can be applied to future implementation of YBCS interventions, and better understand the sustainability of YBCS interventions following/in the absence of CDC funding.
Case study selection is based on a purposeful selection of CDC-funded and non-CDC funded organizations that support YBCS populations through educational or service programs. Potential organizations for this project may be funded through state, local, or Tribal government, or the private sector. Information will be collected approximately two years after initiation of CDC's cooperative agreement. OMB approval is requested for one year.
There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 168.
