Cancer Care Delivery Research Steering Committee
The Cancer Care Delivery Research (CCDR) Steering Committee (SC) was established in February 2015. It serves to review and prioritize cancer care delivery research concepts to be conducted through the NCORP Research Base mechanism.
The core committee membership includes representatives from the NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) Research Bases, R01 investigators, community oncologists, biostatisticians, patient advocates, and NCI Staff. The CCDRSC meets monthly by conference call to review study concepts and approximately yearly in person to review the study portfolio. View the CCDRSC member roster.
Studies under the purview of the CCDRSC will include:
- Descriptive observational studies to document the prevalence and variability of specific cancer care delivery models, approaches and/or processes
- Analytic observational studies to understand how the multi-level characteristics of care delivery models, approaches and processes influence quality, outcomes and access
- Intervention studies, including RCT designs, to test new models, approaches and/or processes of care delivery to improve quality, outcomes and access
