Committee Charge

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 goal of CCDR within NRG and the NCORP is to generate evidence that can be used to improve clinical practice, particularly through the evaluation of pragmatic interventions focused on clinicians, staff, and/or practices.

NRG CCDR research priorities focus on the following topics:

  • Integrating patient-reported outcomes into clinical practice (extends survival;
  • Enhance access to proven survivorship and palliative care strategies optimizing survivor and family quality of life;
  • Optimize screening strategies based on disease risk including patients in the post-treatment surveillance phase of care
  • Implement evidence-based symptom management strategies addressing patients’ needs during both active adjuvant and palliative treatment.
  • NRG CCDR is especially interested in interventions that address and ameliorate health disparities especially among rural, older, and/or racially/ethnically diverse adult populations.
