The Behavioral Health and Survey Research Core (BHSRC) is a developing shared resource designed to support Duke Cancer Institute (DCI) investigators interested in using state-of-the-science, evidence-based behavioral and epidemiological research methods for cancer-related research. The BHSRC is led by Kathryn Pollak, PhD, and Laura Fish, PhD, who together have over 30 years of combined experience designing and implementing surveys and developing educational materials. Collectively, BHSRC staff provides unique expertise in behavioral science, epidemiology and survey research.
The BHSRC provides three essential services: 1) needs assessment/qualitative data analysis, 2) survey development, and 3) patient education materials development.
Needs Assessment and Qualitative Data Analysis
Patient Education Materials
Services and resources provided by the BHSRC are available to all DCI members. Members interested in using this resource should contact Dr. Fish directly, either by phone or email. Once the initial request is received, Dr. Fish will schedule an in-person or phone meeting with the requesting research team and appropriate BHSRC personnel.
As a developing Shared Resource, the BHSRC does not currently charge DCI members for services.
Duke Cancer Institute constellates the world-class resources of Duke University, Duke Health and the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center into a collaborative powerhouse. We are poised to drive a paradigm shift in the way long-established cancer centers and institutes have been waging this war.Learn More
