TRIP: Translating Research Into Practice

TRIP Logo_220X277.png

Translating Research into Practice is a 5-year NIH funded grant to improve the delivery of quality breast cancer care among vulnerable patients through a coordinated care delivery model. 

TRIP’s three-part intervention includes:

  • a local Patient Navigation Network

  • Shared regional registry

  • Screening and referrals for social determinants of health

The 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 includes leadership from Massachusetts' four Clinical and Translational Science Institutes, involves six major treating hospitals in Boston and a variety of community partners, including the Boston Breast Cancer Equity Coalition.
