The authors wish to acknowledge the guidance of Terry Field and Diana Buist, members of the Health Care Systems (HCS) Cancer Research Network (CRN) and CRN Scholar Program Mentors, who contributed to the development of this project. The overall goal of the CRN is to conduct collaborative research to determine the effectiveness of preventive, curative, and supportive interventions for major cancers that span the natural history of those cancers among diverse populations and health systems. HealthPartners Institute is an Affiliate Member of the HCS Research Network. The authors would also like to acknowledge Mandy Fraser, Amanda Lacy, and Lauryn Davin, who provided technical assistance during the literature review process and with manuscript preparation and submission.
