Question 1: When describing other cancer care resources (hospitals, clinics, physicians, cancer centers), who do you NOT want to be reported? The feeling is that all the physicians, etc. in the area will not be making referrals to be considered in protocols/projects applicable to the NCORP because they are part of cancer centers and practices that are not part of this application and will not make referrals.
Question 2: You ask for percentage of "patients in the catchment area 65+" and also percentage of "patients in their cancer registry over 65." This could be the same in some cases. Can you clarify more clearly what you are asking for?
Question 3: Do we need to provide a map for all sub-components in addition to the components?
Question 4: FOA - P. 12/35 Sub-Section A, Org Structure Catchment Area: Should catchment area be delineated for CCDR since it could be different from the clinical trials?
Question 5: Regarding Catchment area: The last sentence is confusing. You ask for percentage of "patients in the catchment area 65+" and also percentage of "patients in their cancer registry over 65". This could be the same in some cases. Can you clarify more clearly what you are asking for and give examples?
Question 6: Our "catchment areas" are quite large so to include maps of them will use up most of the page allotment for the Organization and Structure Section. Are we permitted to include them in the Appendix and reference them in the narrative?
Question 7: To be eligible, can our catchment area be comprised of 30% racial/ethnic minorities and rural populations combined?
Question 8: Catchment area: We are to include the socioeconomic and social deprivation of the study population for this application but we are trying to determine exactly what you want. Does this apply to the cancer patient population within the component and how do we measure this since we cannot find that it is captured in any demographic info that the components can measure?
Question 9: For the question about "the percentage of patients in their cancer registries over the age of 65," is there a timeframe we are looking at and does it matter if the patients are alive or deceased?
