Areas of Research:
The most favorable outcomes for cancer patients can be achieved only when cancer treatments of proven efficacy are
effectively delivered in the general community. The Applied Research
Program supports efforts to monitor patterns of treatment dissemination through
Patterns of Care/Quality of Care Studies, including monitoring treatment and quality of life measures
in the Prostate Cancer Outcomes Study. Other efforts that contribute
knowledge to this area include
the Cancer Care Outcomes Research and Surveillance Consortium (CanCORS)
and the SEER-Medicare Linked Database.
