Health services research: Evaluating outcomes of care by using multiple data sources in order to develop tools, models, and strategies aimed at delivering high-quality care across the cancer continuum that is risk stratified, safe, effective, and coordinated
Multi-level research about access to care:
Behavioral economics and health policy research: Studying ways to propagate the beneficial aspects of health policy, regulatory, health insurance, or economic factors on behaviors that affect care across the cancer continuum—or to mitigate the negative effects and unintended consequences
Epidemiologic research: Investigating environmental root causes that affect the risk of cancer and its care across the cancer continuum, including microenvironmental causes, such as pollutants and radiations and macroenvironmental causes, including social, economic, and political conditions.
Implementation science research: Searching for mechanisms to optimize the uptake of evidence from clinical trials and evidence-based practices into clinical and community practice for maximal impact.
