Ensuring quality cancer care by Maria Elizabeth Hewitt( )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How close is American medicine to the ideal of quality cancer care for every person with cancer? Ensuring Quality Cancer Care provides a comprehensive picture of how cancer care is delivered in our nation, from early detection to end-of-life issues. The National Cancer Policy Board defines quality care and recommends how to monitor, measure, and extend quality care to all people with cancer. Approaches to accountability in health care are reviewed." "This volume will be of special interest to health policy makers, public and private healthcare purchasers, medical professionals, patient advocates, researchers, and people with cancer."--Jacket
Describing death in America : what we need to know by Kathleen M Foley( )

3 editions published between 1900 and 2003 in English and held by 2,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National expenditures for medical care in the months and days preceding death are enormous. But we do not know whether that money is buying good quality care or optimizing the quality of life of those dying, or whether the situation is getting better or worse over time. The information that exists "describing death" at a national level--though some of it is very informative--is fragmentary. This report recommends ways to fill the information gaps by better use of existing nationally-representative data, and through some new measures, in particular, a new, ongoing National Mortality Followback Survey. The aim is to allow us to benchmark where we are today as a society, and what goals we can set to minimize pain and suffering and maximize the quality of life of all of us who will die in the years to come

State programs can reduce tobacco use by National Cancer Policy Board( )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing attention is focused on how states can prevent deaths due to tobacco use. Thus state governors, state legislators, and their staffs currently must decide whether to fund tobacco control programs, and, if they do, how much to spend on them. The National Cancer Policy Board (a joint program of the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council) is charged with carrying out policy analyses to help the nation deal with cancer; in 1997, it quickly identified tobacco's role as the foremost cause of cancer deaths as its first topic of concern. The board followed debates taking place in state capitals throughout 1998 and 1999, and decided in July 1999, in consultation with the Board on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention of the Institute of Medicine, that it would be useful to summarize evidence about the effectiveness of state tobacco control programs and to briefly describe those programs for state government officials

A Report On the Sponsors of Cancer Treatment Clinical Trials and Their Approval and Monitoring Mechanisms by Hellen Gelband( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report for the National Cancer Policy Board (NCPB) describes the procedures currently in place in the United States for approving and monitoring clinical trials of cancer treatments. Virtually all cancer clinical trials are funded by agencies of the federal government or the pharmaceutical industry, so the focus is on the requirements for each of these groups. The paper is intended as a jumping off point for the NCPB to consider some of the pressing policy issues surrounding clinical trials in cancer, though as yet, no specific follow-on projects have been initiated
Enhancing data systems to improve the quality of cancer care by Joseph V Simone( )

Large-scale biomedical science : exploring strategies for future research( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature of biomedical research has been evolving in recent years. Technological advances that make it easier to study the vast complexity of biological systems have led to the initiation of projects with a larger scale and scope. In many cases, these large-scale analyses may be the most efficient and effective way to extract functional information from complex biological systems. "Large-Scale Biomedical Science: Exploring Strategies for Future Research looks at the role of these new large-scale projects in the biomedical sciences. Though written by the National Academies' Cancer Policy Board, this book addresses implications of large-scale science extending far beyond cancer research. It also identifies obstacles to the implementation of these projects, and makes recommendations to improve the process. The ultimate goal of biomedical research is to advance knowledge and provide useful innovations to society. Determining the best and most efficient method for accomplishing that goal, however, is a continuing and evolving challenge. The recommendations presented in "Large-Scale Biomedical Science are intended to facilitate a more open, inclusive, and accountable approach to large-scale biomedical research, which in turn will maximize progress in understanding and controlling human disease
