The CREST Dashboard is a comprehensive, multilevel data warehouse that facilitates evaluation of the cancer burden and disparities in the DCI catchment area.  CREST integrates data from the Duke Cancer Registry, Duke EHR, state cancer registries (NC, SC, VA), and contextual measures of social determinants of health.  CREST enables DCI scientists to identify areas in need of targeted efforts to eliminate health disparities, advance cancer health equity and reduce the burden of cancer in our catchment area and beyond

Specific Aims

 1. Curate Duke Cancer Institute patient data to understand the needs of our patient population

 2. Analyze NC Cancer Registry data to identify the burden of cancer in our catchment area and in NC

 3. Examine the impact of social determinants of health in cancer outcomes in catchment area and NC

 4. Examine the prevalence and trends in key cancer risk factors in key cancer risk factors in catchment area and NC

 5. Be responsive to data needs and requests from community partners and DCI investigators using CREST infrastructure to interrogate cancer data in NC and/or catchment area


We highly encourage reviewing/completing the COEE Foundational Training on LMS to provide context to the data presented in the Dashboard.
