Administrative Supplements for the P30 Cancer Center Support Grants to Enhance Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Data Collection

May 03, 2022

The NCI Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences in partnership with the NCI Center to Reduce Health Disparities and the NIH Sexual & Gender Minority Research Office announces the opportunity for recipients of NCI-funded P30 Cancer Center Support Grants to submit requests for administrative supplements to implement standardized SOGI data collection, with the potential future use of the data to support surveillance-related activities. 

The purpose of this opportunity is to provide resources to study the implementation of standardized SOGI data collection at NCI-Designated Cancer Centers, in collaboration with their satellite and outlying clinics, and to assess factors associated with implementation, such as feasibility, acceptability, adoption, and appropriateness. Cancer Centers are strongly encouraged to ensure data collection implementation is conducted at their satellite and outlying clinics in addition to their main center, as including both geographically, demographically, and linguistically diverse populations is a priority of the supplement. 

DF/HCC seeks to identify investigators from across the consortium interested in partnering in this effort. Please email Deborah_goff@dfci.harvard.edu no later than 5/13/22 if you are interested in being part of the project team.

Supplement application details: 

  • Application due 6/10/22 
  • Projects should be designed to study the process of implementing The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine-recommended SOGI measuresin cancer-related clinical contexts. 
  • The primary aims of this one-year supplement opportunity are:  
    1. The successful implementation of administering standardized SOGI measures at NCI-Designated Cancer Centers;  
    2. Identification of barriers and facilitators toward implementation of SOGI measures at the patient, provider, and organizational level; and  
    3. Development and piloting of viable solutions to integrate the meaningful use of SOGI measures into clinical and administrative contexts. 
  • Training for physicians and care providers to collect SOGI data in a sensitive and culturally competent manner should be included in the implementation plan for the projects.
