Quality Improvement and Research

With our community partners, PECaD conducts quality-improvement activities. The goals of these activities are:

  • To assess and improve efforts to end cancer disparities
  • To promote appropriate patient participation in clinical studies at the Siteman Cancer Center by gender, race and ethnicity
  • To engage community leadership to strengthen the relevance, reach and direction of cancer disparities research
  • To use community-based participatory research approaches to understand and eliminate cancer disparities

This section of our website houses information about quality-improvement and research projects divided into three categories:
