Many investigators have indicated an interest in collaborating with IRENE and are invited to determine what is appropriate. To be of interest to IRENE, your study must be relevant to primary care. If you are interested in writing a grant proposal that includes IRENE, please follow these steps well ahead of the grant deadline:
Examples of IRENE Projects
Randomized Trial to Improve Colorectal Cancer Screening: Barcey T. Levy, PhD, MD, Jeanette Daly, PhD, RN, Yinghui Xu, MS, John W. Ely, MD, MSPH: This was a randomized trial conducted in 16 practices to improve colorectal cancer screening among patients due for screening. We found that mailed educational materials plus a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) improved screening compared with usual care and compared with a physician chart reminder. A telephone call did not improve screening compared with the mailed education and FIT. (American Cancer Society)
