Colorectal Cancer Modeling
The CISNET Colorectal Working Group (CWG) consists of three modeling groups and a coordinating center. The grantees are focused on the long-term objective of reducing the impact of colorectal cancer by providing the information needed to address key policy questions and prioritize future research. The models describe the natural history of colorectal cancer using different underlying structures, which enables model comparisons that explore the impact of structural uncertainty. The CWG is funded to inform emerging issues in health policy across the colorectal cancer control spectrum, inform colorectal cancer research priorities and study design using a value of information (VOI) framework, estimate the potential benefit of targeted colorectal cancer screening ("precision medicine"), and engage stakeholders, train modelers, and promote model transparency to ensure high-quality evaluation of colorectal cancer, now and in the future.
