The Outreach Core will enhance community capacities, support university-community partnerships, and develop and deliver training to yield culturally respectful and effective research and dissemination with Native American (NA) communities. The Outreach Core will serve as a catalyst for action through meaningful research application and translation of research results in partnership with programs serving NAs in reservation and urban settings. The Outreach Core will work with the investigative teams of the proposed full and pilot research projects to optimize tribal benefit and engagement and will work with the other NACP Cores to optimize benefits and NA student inclusion.
Aim 1. Increase UACC and NAU researchers’ and students’ knowledge of Native Americans’ cancer burden, current cancer control programs, cancer-related needs, and health care systems to enhance institutional capacities and to design sustainable, relevant cancer research and prevention programs
Aim 2. Enhance skills and competency of NACP-supported students and investigators regarding best research practices when engaging in research with tribal communities.
Aim 3. Offer a dissemination academy to students and investigators designed to augment their abilities to apply and translate NACP research results through enhanced health care services and community-based educational activities.
Aim 4. Contribute to the National Cancer Institute’s National Outreach Network (NON) and collaborate with NACP’s Community Advisory Board (CAB) to develop, prioritize, implement, and evaluate requested cancer-related activities to benefit Native American communities.
