Proposed Project

    Case Studies to Explore Interventions to Support, Build, and 
Provide Legacy Awareness for Young Breast Cancer Survivors--New--
National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion 
(NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Young breast cancer survivors (YBCS, defined as women diagnosed 
with breast cancer under 45 years old) may have a more difficult time 
coping with breast cancer treatment and aftercare when compared to 
older breast cancer survivors. For example, breast cancer can be more 
serious, treatment is often multimodal and more toxic, and side effects 
can be more severe for YBCS than for older women. As part of the 
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590, 2010), Congress 
passed the Education and Awareness Requires Learning Young (EARLY) Act, 
Sec. 10413. The EARLY Act directed CDC to

[[Page 42077]]

develop and implement national campaigns to educate young women 
(particularly those at increased risk) and health care providers about 
breast cancer risk and early diagnosis. As a result of the EARLY Act, 
CDC established the Funding Opportunity Announcement, DP11-1111, 
Developing Support and Educational Awareness for Young (< 45 years of 
age) Breast Cancer Survivors in the United States. Subsequently, CDC 
awarded a three-year cooperative agreement to seven organizations that 
demonstrated a capacity to (1) reach YBCS, health care providers, and 
caregivers/families, (2) implement interventions that seek to provide 
support services, and (3) develop educational communication and 
awareness resources to support YBCS.
    Other establishments within the U.S., such as local and national 
not-for-profit organizations and academic institutions, implement 
similar YBCS-focused interventions without funding from CDC's DP11-1111 
cooperative agreement. Although these entities are not funded through 
CDC, they plan, develop, and employ similar tools, strategies, and 
interventions to reach or benefit these targeted young cancer-survivor 
    CDC proposes to conduct exploratory case studies of organizations 
that provide support services and/or educational resources to YBCS, 
health care providers, and/or caregivers/families. Each selected 
organization will serve as a unique case and the unit of analysis. 
Information will be collected from up to 12 organizations: Seven case 
studies will be conducted with organizations that receive funding 
through CDC's DP11-1111 cooperative agreement, and up to five case 
studies will be conducted with other organizations that are 
implementing similar YBCS-focused activities and interventions but do 
not receive funding under DP11-1111. Information will be collected 
during a single site visit to each selected organization to conduct in-
person interviews with key programmatic staff and to record on-site 
observations of program planning and implementation activities.
    Case studies are intended to serve as an exploration of 
implementation activities, as well as to provide the context for 
implementation. Specifically, case study findings will help CDC to 
identify areas in which CDC can build upon existing and emerging 
efforts to provide support services and educational resources to YBCS, 
highlight barriers and facilitating factors to implementing 
interventions targeting YBCS, determine the added value of providing 
the DP11-1111 cooperative agreement (e.g., funding, technical 
assistance) to various entities, identify lessons learned that can be 
applied to future implementation of YBCS interventions, and better 
understand the sustainability of YBCS interventions following/in the 
absence of CDC funding.
    CDC will be able to gain a deeper understanding of (1) 
implementation of the DP11-1111 cooperative agreement, (2) 
implementation of YBCS interventions, including barriers and 
facilitators to implementation, and (3) similarities and differences 
among organizations serving YBCS. Case study findings will be compiled 
and summarized in site-specific and cross-site reports to CDC. 
Information collected will help to enhance existing efforts to provide 
educational resources and support services to YBCS and inform 
replication of promising YBCS interventions in other settings.
    Case study selection is based on a purposeful selection of CDC-
funded and non-CDC funded organizations that support YBCS populations 
through educational or service programs. Potential organizations for 
this project include local or national not-for-profit organizations and 
academic institutions. Information will be collected using on-site 
observations and in-depth interviews (IDI) with each organization's key 
informants, such as Principal Investigators, Program Managers, Program 
Staff, and Program Partners. IDIs will last 1-2 hours each. Case study 
findings will be compiled and summarized in site-specific and cross-
site reports to CDC. Information will be collected approximately two 
years after initiation of CDC's cooperative agreement, DP11-1111. OMB 
approval is requested for 12 months.
    There are no costs to respondents other than their time.
