Cancer Care Delivery Research (CCDR) and NCORP
NCORP is committed to providing superior care and clinical research to patients in their communities. Cancer Care Delivery Research (CCDR) is a multidisciplinary science that seeks to improve clinical outcomes and patient well-being by intervening on patient, clinician, and organizational factors that influence care delivery.
The NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) offers unique opportunities to conduct care delivery research in community settings where the majority of cancer patients receive their treatment. Integrating care delivery research within the NCORP network provides the ability to collect primary data and initiate interventions; look across a mix of practice models and heterogeneous populations; and follow patients from time of diagnosis through treatment and survivorship.
