Translating Research Into Practice
The TRIP Project, a 5-year grant funded by NIH (1 U01 TR002070), aims to improve the delivery of quality breast cancer care among vulnerable patients through a coordinated care delivery model that includes:
- Patient Navigation network
- Shared regional patient registry via REDCap
- Screening and referrals for social determinants of health
Using this 3-part intervention, TRIP aims to address barriers to care and reduce delays in time to treatment for African American women in Boston. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate city-wide racial disparities in breast cancer care and outcomes, and to serve as a model nationally for other health problems.
TRIP is led by four Principal Investigators from the four Massachusetts CTSA hubs, partnered with the Boston Breast Cancer Equity Coalition, and 6 Boston hospitals that care for women with breast cancer.
