The CIC Cancer project will measure value-based outcomes in five cancers using internationally established methods (International Consortium for Health Outcomes - ICHOM). We will trial these outcome measures in a public and private setting in Perth. We will use the data collected to:
feedback to individual services on the care they provide;
work with health providers to identify gaps in services and variations in patient outcomes; and
develop new research and development programs to address these gaps, and improve clinical practice.
The results of this research project will be used to identify best practice and we will work with health services and other researchers to improve cancer care where needed. The results will also be published and/or presented in a variety of forums. In any publication and/or presentation, information will be provided in such a way that you cannot be identified.
The objectives of this project are to:
implement a system that will enable the capture and integration of existing clinical and new PROMs in both public and private hospital settings;
demonstrate the value of this combined dataset to informing clinical assessment and treatment protocols as determined by both clinicians and their patients;
determine whether the health outcomes of cancer patients being managed in this way improve relative to those undergoing current clinical practices; and
determine whether the improved patient outcomes can be achieved in a cost-efficient manner.
