Cross-Cutting Methods

We are utilizing a mixed methods approach for our data collection. Mixed methods focus on collecting, analyzing, and synthesizing both quantitative and qualitative data in a single study or series of interconnected studies in a coherent manner. Our quantitative methods are population-based descriptive and analytic studies; our qualitative methods incorporate diverse perspectives across healthcare sectors and stakeholders to explore contextual factors. In addition, our knowledge translation subgroup is carrying out an environmental scan of existing programs in Canada aimed at improving coordination between primary care and oncology care providers.
