Cancer Prevention Program

A Multi-State Study of Cancer Treatment and Outcomes Among American Indians

PI: Scott Ramsey, MD, PhD

This project will link clinical information, health care claims, and outcomes data for AIAN cancer patients in California, Oregon, and Washington State. This resource will be used to evaluate adherence to cancer treatment and post-treatment surveillance for AIAN Medicaid and Medicare enrollees diagnosed with lung, breast, colorectal, prostate, cervical, ovarian, and stomach cancer. In-person interviews will be conducted to identify barriers to care that are not available from the electronic records.
