Examining the Association between HIV and Cancer Outcomes using Linked Registry Data - Anna Coghill, Ph.D.

Registry Database Studies Seminar

Dr. Coghill will discuss recent findings of an elevation in cancer-specific mortality associated with HIV infection, using data from 5 U.S. cancer registries participating in the HIV/AIDS Cancer Match Study. In the second portion of the talk, she will focus on efforts to utilize the SEER-Medicare database to further evaluate the role of HIV in cancer outcomes. She will illustrate methods of identifying cancer treatment codes in the various Medicare claims files during specific time intervals after cancer diagnosis.
