The course focuses on how clinical epidemiology is a needed tool throughout the cancer care pathway in terms of research methodology. The course aims to develop the participants' understanding of clinical cancer epidemiology and how it can provide a methodology for researching prevention, early diagnosis and detection, treatment outcomes, and living with and beyond cancer.
