Cancer Care Coordination (VA HSR&D, PI: Haggstrom) 2017-2018. This project, using interviews and surveys, seeks to develop valid measures with which to systematically measure care coordination among patients diagnosed with cancer in the VA.
Population Health in the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center Catchment Area (NCI, PI: Loehrer) 2016-2018. Data will be collected from at least 1000 individuals seen at Indiana University Health, who reside in counties with higher than average cancer mortality rates, will help the IU Simon Cancer Center and its partners to understand cancer-related knowledge, beliefs, and behaviors, including cancer information-seeking behaviors, in a way that has not been previously possible. Role: Project Director
Patient-Centered Informatics for Cancer Survivors (Walther Cancer Foundation, Inc., PI: Haggstrom) 2016-2019. A tool for survivors, the cancer personal health record facilitates patient self-management, as well as co-management with their physicians, of symptoms, psychological problems, and healthy behaviors.
