Dr. Provenzale is Director of GI Outcomes Research at Duke University and the Director of the Durham Epidemiologic Research and Information Center (ERIC). She directs a research program that integrates observational research, measurement of patient-centered outcomes and decision making to investigate patient-oriented research questions in gastrointestinal cancer screening, surveillance and quality of care. Dr. Provenzale also directs the training program for GI fellows committed to careers in health services research.

Research:

Ongoing projects include CanCORS, an NCI/VA funded consortium to measure quality of lung and colorectal cancer care in VA and non-VA settings, and the development and dissemination of CCQMS, a cancer care quality measurement system. Additional studies are developing a cancer tissue repository for microarray studies.
