Through a subcontract with SAIC-Frederick, this project will further develop, refine and evaluate the National Community Cancer Centers Program (NCCCP) Clinical Trials Best Practice Matrix Tool for broader use in the NCI community cancer research program beyond the NCCCP.
Information gathered from these analyses will inform next steps in the continued development and use of the outcomes database and will provide an assessment of the current state of physical therapy practice, the degree of variation in practice for select diagnoses, and how practice relates to clinical practice guidelines and evidence.
UNC will assist AIR and our other teamed subcontractors in building infrastructure for AHRQ to support work that connects research and data for purposes of developing and facilitating the use of evidence-based health care quality and efficiency measures.
Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) Sustainability: Assessing the Interplay Between Organizational, Environmental, and Network Factors That Predict Long-Term Performance and Survival
Through a sole source contract we examined the organizational, network and environmental factors associated with the sustainability of a federally funded national PBRN in community-based practice settings.
This project developed a model and produced a template for community-based provider organizations to evaluate the business case for participating in the Community Clinical Oncology Program.
This project examines the implementation, impact, sustainability, and business case of the NCI’s Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP), a federally funded national provider-based research network (PBRN) that NIH sees as a model for PBRNs in other disease areas.
This project supports the Division of Health Services Regulation in the development and use of the NC hospital discharge database, emergency room database, and the ambulatory surgery database.
