Georgia's Online Cancer Information Center

Collaboration

Georgia CORE’s collective impact model engages providers, researchers, survivors and advocates statewide. We provide the backbone support to enable these leaders to traverse organizational and professional boundaries. This way, we are able to achieve collectively what we could not accomplish individually.

  • With the Georgia Department of Public Health and the Georgia Cancer Control Consortium of 88 members, we develop and implement collaborative, multi-faceted approaches to cancer prevention and control through Georgia’s Cancer Plan, and monitor results that reduce the cancer burden in our state. 

  • We facilitate a statewide network of oncologists dedicated to conducting clinical trials and cancer care delivery research that bring new and promising treatments to cancer patients in all corners of the state. Our research advances have been published in scientific journals and presented at state, national and international conferences. There has been an eight-fold increase in the number of clinical trials in Georgia since the creation of our research network and statewide promotion of clinical trials.

  • We are partners in the Georgia NCI Community Oncology Research Program (GA NCORP) with Northside Hospital Cancer Institute and Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer and Research Pavilion. Georgia CORE manages NCI research among 100 rostered physicians in 41 locations with members including Amos Cancer Center at Piedmont Columbus, Harbin Clinic, Navicent Health, and Northeast Georgia Medical Center. GA NCORP has received accolades as a high performing program for accruals to the National Cancer Treatment Network. 
  • We led the creation of a statewide cancer survivorship initiative including establishing the Cancer Survivorship Advisory Board, conducting a Cancer Survivors’ Needs Assessment survey with 1,000 respondents identifying their unmet survivorship needs, hosting the “Cancer Survivorship: Up Close & Personal” conference, developing the Cancer Survivorship Connection and focusing cancer survivorship care research through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute award.
  • In partnership with the Georgia Society of Clinical Oncology, we provide education for oncology professionals, cancer navigators and healthcare providers.

Indeed, collaboration is at the heart of everything we do.
