Health Services and International Studies

The Health Services and International Studies Working Committee provides scientific oversight for studies related to the social and economic barriers to access hematopoietic cell transplantation, including quality of care, and the influence of pyschosocial factors on transplant outcomes. The committee also focuses on non-US investigators and provides oversight for studies involving international cooperation or regarding regional issues and differences in hematopoietic cell transplantation. The Committee works in partnership with our Health Services Research program, which provides resources and expertise to enhance research that utilizes the CIBMTR observational database.
