The following outlines some of Dr. Krebs' current and recent research support projects:
09/17/12 - 07/31/16
American Indian M-Health Smoking Dependence Study (PQ4)
The research question is “Why don’t Northern Plains American Indians alter tobacco use behaviors known to increase the risk of cancer?” The outcomes will document and track predictors of intention to quit smoking, successful quit attempts and relapse. Study results will affect tobacco use among Northern Plains American Indians by providing insight into effective cessation interventions for this population.
05/27/08 – 01/31/14
Native Navigators and the Cancer Continuum (NNACC)
NNACC is a community based participatory research (CBPR) project based on partnerships among three American Indian (AI) communities in: (1) Colorado, (2) South Dakota and (3) Michigan. The goal is for the partners to collaborate to refine, expand and adapt various navigator models used within each partners’ setting to address Native American community and patients’ needs throughout the continuum of cancer care.
09/22/10 - 01/31/14
Native Navigators and the Cancer Continuum: Muscogee (Creek) Nation (NNACC)
This supplement adds a new NNACC site of Muscogee (Creek) Nation in Oklahoma.
09/30/10 – 09/29/15
Spirit of Eagles Community Network Program
The goal of this five-year study is to efficiently coordinate and assess a national cancer research program for AIAN communities. NACR’s roles include (1) providing technical assistance to 2 AIAN communities to implement cancer needs assessments and develop pilot interventions and (2) support for the "Native American Cancer Education for Survivors", specifically to the Northern Plains communities.
Collaborative Partnerships in Cancer Prevention and Control Programs for American Indians
This is a 5-year project to develop, strengthen and expand collaborative partnerships among: (a) American Indian / Alaska Native (AIAN) tribal and urban Indian programs / health facilities; (b) state and local health departments; and, (c) other organizations working with AIAN cancer prevention and control.
OT13-1303: Tribal Public Health Capacity Building and Quality Improvement
The goal of this Priority 2 Project is to provide evaluation for the funded tribal public health capacity building and quality improvement programs.
