Research Resources & Initiatives

The Healthcare Delivery Research Program (HDRP) has developed a variety of Public Use Data sets and Measurement Tools that are available for research use. These resources can be used to address research questions at various points across the cancer control continuum. Additionally, HDRP funds or participates in several Research Networks and runs several diverse Research Initiatives that look at the delivery of cancer care across the continuum.
