Health Services Research

Main Content

CIBMTR conducts health services research that complements activities of the Health Services/Donor Health and Safety Working Committee and the Morbidity, Recovery, and Survivorship Working Committee and requires different resources than CIBMTR Working Committee studies.

Examples of health services research include: 

  • Value and health economics of transplant and other cellular therapies
  • Healthcare disparities in access to and outcomes of transplant and other cellular therapies
  • Survivorship, patient-reported outcomes, and quality of life among recipients of transplant and other cellular therapies
  • Treatment decision-making for patients and health professionals
  • Translation of research into clinical practice
