NCCN-Lilly RFP on quality of care in gastric cancer

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network announced a collaboration with Eli Lilly and Co. to offer a new opportunity seeking proposals to bridge gaps in care for gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancer patients in the U.S. The Request for Proposals outlines the scope and process that will be followed for the submission of Letters of Intent.

The intent of the RFP is to encourage U.S. organizations to submit LOIs describing concepts and ideas for developing, implementing, and evaluating programs that close clinical practice gaps and improve the quality of care for patients with gastric/GEJ cancer through adherence to evidence-based medicine guidelines, and improved competence and performance of health care providers and health care systems.

NCCN views this collaboration with Lilly as clear recognition of the advantages offered to industry and organizations treating cancer patients through the NCCN Oncology Research Program.

LOIs are due by 11:59 PM EDT, Wednesday, Oct. 24. Please direct questions in writing to Nicole Kamienski at with the subject line, “2018 Gastric Project.”
