Laura Weeks PhD (Ottawa Integrative Cancer Centre)

Project title:

Identifying patient outcome data collection strategies within integrative oncology settings worldwide: A Delphi survey





Project summary:
Our goal is to determine what data is being collected to evaluate patient experiences within cancer care programs that combine complementary therapies with standard care, and what people feel ideally should be done. We will survey clinicians, researchers, patients and decision makers in three rounds to work towards consensus for a common approach. We will use the results to develop evaluation guidelines that can be used across integrative oncology programs in Canada, and internationally.
