Cancer Care Outcomes Research & Surveillance Consortium (CanCORS)
The NCI, in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), is supporting a research consortium of eight grantees to measure the quality of cancer care and associated health outcomes in the United States. This project, entitled "Cancer Care Outcomes Research and Surveillance Consortium" (CanCORS), supports prospective research in a cohort of approximately 10,000 patients with newly diagnosed lung cancer or colorectal cancer recruited from geographically diverse populations and health care systems.
Seven of the CanCORS sites are supported by NCI grants funded through a cooperative agreement with ARP. The VA funds the eighth site.
