Research Abstract

The Center for Cancer Policy and Program Evaluation (CarPE) within the Department of Population Medicine (DPM) serves as a catalyst for rigorous and impactful policy research across the cancer care continuum by faculty in the DPM and our external collaborators. Our mission is to generate sound evidence to inform policies and programs, for use by stakeholders in the United States and elsewhere. We leverage the diverse research expertise of DPM faculty, effectively use and expand DPM’s large population-based electronic data resources, and actively collaborate with delivery system and payer partners of the DPM.

Within CarPE, Dr. Wagner conducts empirical research to generate evidence for answering ethically challenging health system questions related to new, highly-priced cancer therapeutics. Her work, frequently in large databases, evaluates impacts of insurance and other policy changes on the availability, access, affordability, and use of new cancer medicines, in the United States, China, and elsewhere.
