Project Title: National Awareness and Early Diagnosis Initiative Research Call 3
Details: The National Awareness and Early Diagnosis Initiative (NAEDI) is a partnership between the Department of Health, National Cancer Action Team and Cancer Research UK. It aims to promote earlier diagnosis of cancer, increasing access to optimal treatment and thereby improving survival rates and reducing cancer mortality. NAEDI Research Call 3 will accept high quality, researcher driven project grant applications on any topic within the field of early cancer diagnosis including the following key questions where the evidence is currently lacking:
• Investigating reasons for late presentation (to primary care or A&E) and low uptake of screening.
• Developing effective interventions to prompt change, at both individual and systemic levels, to reduce late presentation and low uptake of screening.
• Investigating reasons for delays occurring within primary care and onward referral.
The deadline for full project grant applications is 13 September 2013.
