The validation of interim outcome measures for the evaluation of interventions promoting increased cancer awareness and early detection

Centre for Cancer Prevention

Funding Body:  Cancer Research UK

Project Investigator:  Professor Sue Moss


Validated outcome measures are needed to evaluate interventions which aim to improve the early detection of cancer.

The aims of this project are to review data available on interim outcome measures used to evaluate awareness and early detection initiatives for colorectal and ovarian cancers, and to use modelling to study the relationship of short-term and interim outcome measures, and to predict longer-term outcomes, taking into account variation in outcome according to ethnicity and social deprivation.

The application of these findings will enable standardised outcome measures to be used, to aid the comparison of results between studies and the development of effective initiatives.
