To improve the outcomes and reduce the ethnic/racial disparities related to prostate cancer.
The Florida Prostate Cancer Atlas 2014
Understanding patterns of care, variation and disparities are critical initial steps in assessing areas of need, and may help not only to better quantify variation in care, but also to aid in defining factors related to potential health disparities and in identifying at-risk populations where targeted interventions may yield mortality reduction. Since there is little known about how prostate cancer is treated in Florida, how variable care is, or to what extent variation in prostate cancer treatment contributes to health disparities, mapping how prostate cancer is treated in Florida through a Florida Prostate Cancer Atlas may move these goals forward. These objectives were the genesis of the Florida Prostate Cancer Atlas Project. For more information and to view these findings, Click Here.
