Population based Cancer Research

Focus is on patient-centered outcome research that reflects consumer-driven health care decision and health system research. If patients have access to required information and appropriate assessment of preferences, they could make better choices for their own health. Patient-centered outcomes research focuses on patient’s beliefs, preferences, and needs, in contrast to physician-centered care

  • NIHR Grant: STAGE1. Multi-morbidity and cancer: What real-time Patient reported experiences (PREM), andoutcomes (PROM) e-tools tell us.
  • Through this work we aim to
  • Identify the existing tools measuring Cancer Patient Reported Outcomes (PROM), Experiences measurements (PREM) and develop and validate voice technology-based (Voice AI) real-time, ePROM and ePREM tools that will capture cancer treated patients’ experiences, outcomes, multimorbidity across the continuum of care.
