Applications for the second cohort of the Together, Equitable, Accessible, Meaningful (TEAM) Training are now open! This no-cost training aims to support equitable, accessible and patient-centered cancer care. The training provides guidance, tools and resources to help individuals and organizations implement quality improvements around patient-provider communication, health literacy, cultural sensitivity and shared decision-making.

The training is intended for organizations that provide cancer care services or address cancer disparities. Services can include: community/population health interventions with a cancer-related focus, navigation, education, screening, diagnostic testing, treatment, psychosocial support and survivorship care.

Organizations must be located in the United States, tribes or territories to participate. Organizations may range in size (e.g., specific oncology department, entire practice or hospital) and care setting (e.g., community-based clinic, in-patient facility).

The GW Cancer Center will select up to 15 organizations to participate in the training. From March 11-June 21, 2019 teams will receive sustained instruction and guidance in support of their efforts to improve cancer-related services to be more culturally sensitive and equitable. Training components include an individual self-paced online course, a two-and-a-half-day workshop in Washington, D.C. and technical assistance from faculty in creating and implementing a quality improvement plan.

Applications must be submitted to by Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Decision notifications will be sent to all applicants via email the week of February 4, 2019.
