Title: African Americans and Tailored Cancer Screening: Evidence and Ethics

Abstract: Dr. Chapman will discuss the elevated cancer mortality that African Americans experience and the ethical barriers to consideration of tailored cancer screening strategies that have the potential to reduce this disparity.

Active Year(s): 2012-2013

We randomly sampled 50% of the adult medical oncologists we were able to identify as practicing at institutions affiliated with one of the 41 NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers to explore the following aims:

  • Describe the prevalence of interaction between adult medical oncologists and development staff and the type of requests from development staff for physicians’ participation in philanthropic activities for their institution.
  • Describe the practices of actual participation by medical oncologists in philanthropic activities.
  • Describe medical oncologists’ perceptions of physician participation in philanthropy at their individual institutions.

Dr. Reshma Jagsi was involved with a study that reported an increase in women who recieved breast reconstruction following a masectomy for breast cancer. The study found that, "46 percent of patients received reconstruction in 1998 but that figure rose to 63 percent by 2007." Jagsi said, "Breast reconstruction has a big impact on quality of life for breast cancer survivors. As we are seeing more women survive breast cancer, we need to focus on long term survivorship issues and ensuring that women have access to this important part of treatment."

Lewis Morgenstern’ s stroke education study offered in public schools in Texas to help children recognize symptoms of stroke is cited by Yahoo News, NPR, Fox News, and many other news outlets. Morgenstern was quoted, "The data was highly positive in terms of knowledge about stroke and their intention to call 911... The earlier we can make people aware of stroke and that it's arguably the most treatable of all catastrophic conditions, the better off we will be."
 

Research Topics: 

Funded by Health and Human Services, Department of-National Institutes of Health-Subcontracts

Funding Years: 2013 - 2015.

The University of Michigan contract includes work on Cores C, and on Projects 3 and 5. These components are described below, as are the roles of key personnel at University of Michigan.

  • Core C - Modeling Core: We will build models of disease processes for common diseases of the elderly, synthesizing this information at the patient level. These models will focus on care for cardiovascular disease (Project 3), cancer (Project 4), and mood disorders (Project 5). To ensure that outputs are comparable across models, Core C will develop and implement a standardized set of assumptions for these disease models.
  • Project 3- The Value of Interventions for Cardiovascular Disease : This project will assess trends in the value of cardiovascular disease interventions over time. We will build models estimating the value of spending on coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke. This will be done by documenting trends, developing microsimulation models relating trends in risk factors and use of medical therapies to trends in health. We will integrate the coronary heart disease and stroke models to obtain a single model of cardiovascular disease using dynamic Influence Diagrams to evaluate a potential method for integrating multiple diseases in the future.
  • Project 5- The Value of Interventions for Depression: We will examine whether the value of depression care has changed over time using cross-sectional and longitudinal data from the Health and Retirement Study. Knowledge of the value of depression care can be of great use for making and refining mental health care policy in the US.
