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:
