The Cancer Control Core can help you plan your study and apply for access to VDH Cancer Registry data and for UVA IRB approval. Data use is subject to permission, which depends on variables of interest and research objectives. Mapping services include incidence and mortality mapping based upon your research needs. In addition, the Core has the capacity for internally based geocoding and route finding.
  • Assistance with linking health records across data systems
  • Assistance in quantifying the economics of cancer prevention and treatment
  • Assistance in the identification and recommendation of instruments, such as quality of life, for collection of participant data.

Our data services team has recently analyzed data from the Virginia state cancer registry to examine quality care and mortality among women with locally advanced cervical cancer. These analyses have been featured in a recent publication (Determinants of Quality Care and Mortality for Patients With Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer in Virginia).
