About the Authors
  • The U.S. National Cancer Institute established the Cancer Outcomes Measurement Working Group in 2001 to evaluate measurements of the important and diverse impacts of cancer on individuals and populations. The findings and recommendations of the working group's 35 internationally recognized members provide alternative approaches for comprehensively measuring the burden of cancer and the effectiveness of preventive and therapeutic interventions.

    • Comprehensive review and synthesis of cancer outcome measures and methods.
    • Provides invaluable practical guidance to the cancer research manager or individual investigator about how to select high-quality measures of health-related quality of life and other patient-reported outcomes
    • Individual chapters display empirical findings in lucidly presented tables, figures, and charts that facilitate side-by-side comparisons of alternative outcome measures and instruments
    • Material accessible to a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds

    Reviews & endorsements

    "[T]he members of COMWG [Cancer Outcomes Measurement Working Group] are to be commended for providing readers with a thoughtful and detailed overview of where we are and where we need to go to '...strengthen our capacity to measure, evaluate, and improve the outcomes of cancer care.'"--Journal of the American Medical Association

    "...important and timely...This book will be of particular interest to outcomes researchers and their students. However, its appeal is certainly not limited to this audience as anyone who is concerned with cancer-care outcomes and tehir assessment will find many of the chapters informative and useful." The New England Journal of Medicine,/i> David G. Pfister, M.D.
