Upcoming Webinar: 

ASPO Survivorship, Health Outcomes & Comparative Effectiveness Research Special Interest Group presents:

Connecting the dots: the creation and use of data linkages to study cancer survivorship and health outcomes research

ASPO Survivorship, Health Outcomes & Comparative Effectiveness Research Special Interest Group

Link to join: https://cwru.zoom.us/j/929650435

The availability of “big data” in cancer research suggest the potential for new answers to long-standing questions about how to best deliver high quality care to cancer survivors. However, there are several challenges to creating linkages and caveats for their use. This webinar will provide case studies of the creation of new data linkages and discuss how best to leverage existing linkages for cancer control research.
