Survey topics

NCCN Trends™ Global Surveys pose questions regarding topics including, but not limited to, patterns of care, and awareness and utilization of various treatment modalities, as well as key topics impacting oncology stakeholders, such as how changes in the health care environment impact them and their patients.

How it works

  • Organizations supply draft questions for each survey.
  • Following review within the NCCN Trends™ team and prior to survey launch, a consultation call may be scheduled to discuss any potential refinements to the questions according to research goals and data needs. 
  • The data is then gathered through brief electronic surveys to health care providers who access the NCCN website on a frequent basis and express interest in responding to NCCN Trends™ Surveys. 
  • Health care providers surveyed include practicing physicians in diverse practice settings, including academic/research cancer centers, community hospitals, and private practices. Survey participants also represent pharmacists, nurses, and other oncology stakeholders.
