The goal of the Measurement, Outcomes, and Population Science Program is to identify, develop and apply the best methods to answer emerging research questions in clinical cancer care and research.
These methods include the design and testing of patient-centered outcomes, evaluation of comparative effectiveness of diagnostics and therapeutics, incorporating cost effectiveness analysis, systematic review, and meta-analysis, and the application of decision analysis and statistical modeling to clinical decision-making.
More traditional population science disciplines, such as epidemiology, cancer prevention and control are also represented. Specifically, the program aims to:
The expertise of investigators in this program provides a unique resource for cancer collaborations and translational applications across the Tufts Medical Center Cancer Center.
All of the specialties represented in the program represent opportunities for established and emerging methodologies to be applied to cancer issues. We are excited to be exploring these actively as a program and especially interested in the co-evolution of our CTSI and Cancer Center efforts.
