Grants to USA medical IHEs, healthcare institutions, medical education companies, professional associations, and medical societies for educational projects addressing breast cancer. Funding is intended for educational projects directed to healthcare professionals in order to increase their knowledge and understanding of the clinical trial and real world evidence for the CDK 4/6i class.

The availability of CDK 4/6 inhibitors (CDK 4/6i) in combination with an aromatase inhibitor (AI) in HR+/HER2- Metastatic Breast Cancer (mBC) has led to additional months or years of progression free survival (PFS) for patients vs. an AI alone.

The goal is to close gaps in care so that all HR+/HER2- mBC patients have equal access to this therapeutic option. All patients should have access to the same high quality of care as delivered by academic or NCI-designated cancer centers.

The intent of this RFP is to increase healthcare professionals’ knowledge and understanding of the clinical trial and real world evidence for the CDK 4/6i class.

Independent education proposals should include a plan for providing information on clinical trial design and results, real-world study design and results, real-world clinical experience, and best-practices in the treatment of HR+/HER2- mBC.

The education should enable both clinical and access decision makers to better analyze, evaluate the quality of, and interpret relevant findings from randomized clinical trials and real world studies of CDK 4/6i, in terms of the validity, design, and source so that they can accurately interpret current evidentiary findings and incorporate this knowledge into their daily practice and decision making.

The two audiences of interest for this RFP are as follows. Proposals may address one or both of these groups.

  1. Medical oncologists and the cancer care team in community settings including rural and underserved locations.
  2. Institutional decision-makers such as managed-care professionals, pharmacy-managers, clinical pathway implementors, organized medicine leaders etc.

All activity formats will be considered under this RFP (live in-person, live virtual, enduring courses and materials, innovative technologies & platforms etc.)

Ongoing or continuous learning experiences are also in-scope such as the “telementoring” all-teach all-learn approach of Project ECHO from the University of New Mexico.

This RFP is for medical education grants only.
