Article Title: Cancer and Leukemia Group B Cancer Control and Health Outcomes Committee: Origins and accomplishments
Abstract: Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB) has conducted protocols in cancer prevention and control, psycho-oncology, and health services for many years. Significant findings from the studies have emerged and have helped shape the practice of medicine and the direction of future research in these areas. This article describes the origins of the Cancer Control and Health Outcomes Committee within CALGB and briefly describes significant findings and future work. The success CALGB has had with psycho-oncology and health services research has paved the way for other cooperative groups to develop these modalities. Cancer control research is growing and continues to gather momentum. This type of research is integral to providing quality care to patients and healthy populations. © 2006 American Association for Cancer Research.
