he project will involve the utilisation of clinical prediction modelling, disease progression modelling, machine learning and deep learning techniques to develop prognostic tools that allow the presentation of personalised likelihoods of response and adverse effects to medicines used in advanced breast cancer treatment. Such information allows informed decisions to be made. This is particularly important in advanced breast cancers where there are significant consequences to the variability in adverse effect incidences and response to treatments.
This project involves the development of prognostic tools via the analysis of “big data” sourced from clinical trials or from data registries. At present the group has access to individual-patient data (demographic, laboratory and tumour data) from over 10,000 advanced breast cancer patients.
Prospective students require relevant experience and interest in clinical epidemiology, biostatics or pharmacometrics. Additionally, students require good communication skills, and have an interest in improving cancer care
It is hypothesised that effective communication of personalised predictions of expected benefits and harms from medicines used in advanced cancer treatment will improve shared decision making, lead to more informed and empowered patients, and enable better decisions regarding whether to commence and continue medicines.
Our group presently has access to individual-patient data (demographic, laboratory and tumour data) from over 10,000 advanced breast cancer patients. Such data allows the development of prognostic tools that can present personalised likelihood of response and adverse effects to medicines.
Historically high-quality prediction models have rarely been available for more than a single outcome for a single medicine. However improved data collection and data sharing initiatives are allowing validated prognostic models to be developed for multiple outcomes for multiple medicines. Despite this there is very little evidence on the optimal design of prognostic tools or apps for the presentation of both benefit and harms to medicines used in advanced cancers.
The project will involve investigating optimal app designs that facilitate effective and relevant communication of personalised predictions of expected benefits and harms from medicines used in advanced cancer treatment, with a patient centred focus. Prospective students require relevant experience in qualitative research designs (e.g. questionnaire development, focus groups), good communication skills, be clinically orientated and have an interest in improving cancer care. Additionally, students require an interest in clinical epidemiology and / or experience with the R programming language or similar data analysis techniques.
