Aims and objectives

What CREST can do for the Cancer Collaborative Clinical Trials Groups

The Cancer Research Economics Support Team (CREST) will provide services to individual Cancer Collaborative Clinical Trials Groups, as well as developing products and services that will benefit all Groups. Development of capacity and capability with the groups to develop and undertake economic analysis is an important part of our strategy.

Services available to groups through CREST include:

  1. Advice and support for planning and analysis of health economics in cancer trials
  2. Advice on the development of health economic studies within existing trials
  3. Developing appropriate trial protocols for health economic analysis
  4. Expert advice on health economic data collection and analysis
  5. Checking and monitoring economic modeling conducted by groups
  6. Advice on appraising health and health economics results
  7. Capacity building through workshops, seminars, briefing papers and secondments at CHERE
  8. Collaborative relations with the Cancer Australia Chair of Cancer Quality of Life.
