My research is focused on the distribution and the determinants of the outcomes, cost, quality, and access to cancer care services. Our research group also has a significant interest in supportive care. The majority of our research projects involve population-based studies, often utilizing large public-use datasets. We also do some studies that require primary data collection.
A tutorial would be tailored to the student's interests from among the following topics: analysis of large datasets; use of claims data and administrative data to measure outcomes, cost and quality of care; methodological approaches to population-based measurement of access to care and disparities in care; use of census data and geographical information systems to study incidence of disease and access to cancer care.
