The Radiation Oncology Institute (ROI) has released a request for proposal (RFP) to examine the comparative value of radiation therapy. Value encompasses aspects of both comparative and cost effectiveness but can be more broadly defined to include innovative approaches to evaluating the benefits and harms of radiation oncology interventions. Studies that examine the comparative value of radiation therapy have the potential to generate the evidence needed to improve cancer outcomes while slowing the growth of health care spending. Project costs submitted in proposals cannot exceed $200,000 and cannot span more than two years. If interested, download a copy of the RFP for more information.
The deadline for letters of intent is June 21, 2013, and the deadline for proposals is September 20, 2013.
