The mission of the Center of Excellence in Cancer Survivorship is to foster the implementation of evidence-based practices to improve quality of life and optimize outcomes for cancer survivors in New Jersey.
Our goals include:
- Ascertain and monitor unmet needs and disparities, medical outcomes, and quality of life outcomes among New Jersey’s cancer survivors by building a statewide survivor cohort. This will be done by utilizing the New Jersey State Cancer Registry and the resources of Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and the RWJBarnabas Health system.
- Develop and implement best-practice survivorship care standards for New Jersey’s cancer survivors at the patient, provider, and health care system level. This includes: transitions in care from patient to survivor, improving quality of life and adherence to care, and reducing disparities in cancer outcomes.
- Foster clinically-integrated survivorship outcomes research across the RWJBarnabas Health System.
