Costing and Outcomes Data for Various Cancer Cohorts using Administrative Databases in Ontario

Client: Sunnybrook Research Institute
Project ID: P2017-024 / 2018 0970 108 000

Research Question/Objectives: Cancer costs in Canada are high and steadily increasing. In order to determine updated costs specific to certain cancer types, Ontario administrative data that will include utilization of publicly available health resources (e.g., hospitalizations, physician services, same day surgeries, medications, etc.) as well as outcomes (e.g., survival) will be used.

This study will investigate the outcomes and public healthcare costs of resources associated with:

  • ovarian cancer with a BRCA mutation
  • locally advanced non-small cell stage III lung cancer
  • locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer
  • recurrent or metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
