We are pleased to inform you that this year the Swiss Cancer Research foundation supported by the ACCENTUS Foundation (Marlies Engeler Fund)has launcheda new research program on “Health Services Research in Oncology and Cancer Care”.
In addition to basic and clinical research, health services research is considered the “third pillar” of biomedical research. “It examines how people get access to health care, how much care costs, and what happens to patients as a result of this care. The main goals are to identify the most effective ways to organize, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care; reduce medical errors; and improve patient safety” (definition according to the US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality).
The program is scheduled to run over a period of at least five years. We hope to support as many high-quality health services research projects as possible in order to improve the quality of care and the quality of life for cancer patients at all levels of cancer care provision.
By the deadline of 15 September 2016, 44 highly interesting projects were received. Unfortunately only up to a fifth of these can be supported. Help us support a larger number of innovative projects by donating to the Swiss Cancer Research foundation today!
