This special issue of Translational Behavioral Medicine (TBM) solicits papers that focus on the coordination of chronic care, particularly cancer. TBM is especially interested in reports of research that describe the empirical evidence for the value of care coordination in treatment; elaborate on theoretical models of care coordination across the continuum of care; developing, implement, and test a set of conceptually and psychometrically sound, evidence-based, and clinically relevant measures of cancer care coordination; apply multiple levels of observation and intervention to cancer care coordination, from policy/community, organization/health system, and provider/provider teams to the family and individual patients; develop new interventions to enhance patient self-management; and measure the full economic costs of care coordination. Interested research teams should submit an abstract of 250 words or less to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Each abstract will be reviewed, and, if approved, authors will be invited to submit a full manuscript for consideration under a peer-review process. Abstracts are due September 30.
