Annenberg Center for Health Science
Approved: December 2012
Grant Period: January 2013 – August 2013
The Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower, Clinical Care Options (CCO), and AXDEV Group Inc. will strategically work together to perform
- an in-depth exploratory qualitative assessment of attitudinal, motivational, interprofessional, and contextual issues and barriers to the optimal treatment and management of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), and B-cell lymphomas, in academic and community cancer centers across the United States, including the Lucy Curci Cancer Center, and
- an in-depth confirmatory quantitative assessment to validate and expand upon gaps/barriers identified in the qualitative assessment and to assess tumor/treatment/regimen specific gaps. This study will contribute to widen the understanding of the various factors that are affecting clinical reasoning among medical oncologists, beyond the evidence-based clinical processes, in order to better inform the design and deployment of future continuing medical education activities.
