Economics is the science of choice and cancer treatment involves many perplexing decisions. The emerging field of Cancer Economics examines the choices patients make and how they make them. The primary goal of our lab is to systematically listen to patients so that we can better inform medical decision making, treatment recommendations and health policy. Dr. Craig and other members of his lab achieve this goal by conducting online surveys, economic evaluations, and secondary data analyses on a wide range of cancer-related topics.
Beginning in September 2011, the National Cancer Institute(NCI) awarded Craig Lab a 5-year R01 grant to conduct an national valuation study of the National Institutes of Health(NIH) Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System.
Craig Lab benefits from expertise in a wide
range of quantitative disciplines, including econometrics,
psychometrics, statistics and
informatics. In addition, the lab has established relationships with
patient advocates, community-based researchers, and clinician scientists to better incorporate diverse perspectives into our work.
