Overview of Services
The Population Health Shared Resource (PHSR) facilitates cancer prevention and control research in the clinic, community, and population settings. These populations are ideal for studies involving clinical and population sciences; addressing diverse communities; requiring access to large samples of patients and/or providers; examining preventive strategies; and investigating the dissemination of proven technologies and interventions. The PHSR allows investigators access to comprehensive computerized patient and provider data, including those available through COMPASS, the University’s integrated health data warehouse, Practice-based Research Networks, and the Colorado Cancer Registry, assists with data management for large administrative data such as SEER-Medicare, and offers support to members developing research proposals within community and academic practice settings. In addition, the PHSR helps investigators with integrating behavioral aims within any basic, clinical, or population science research.
