  • Smoking Cessation at Lung Examination (SCALE) Collaboration Special Collection
    The Smoking Cessation at Lung Examination (SCALE) Collaboration is a National Cancer Institute (NCI) sponsored initiative to identify consensus measures for research on smoking cessation interventions in the setting of low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) lung cancer screening. A panel of 19 scientists, including funded investigators (6 projects funded by RFA-CA-15-011 and two related projects) and NCI staff, convened from 10/2016-12/2016 to reach consensus on the selection of measures in the domains of demographics and psychological characteristics, medical characteristics and outcomes, tobacco use behavior, implementation, and organizational characteristics.
  • Assessment of Cancer Patient Symptoms and Needs
    The primary aim of the Assessment of Cancer Patient Symptoms and Needs Project is to crowd-source consensus around the best “screener” measures (potentially patient-reported measures and objective measures) that can be given in oncology or survivorship care before, during, and after cancer treatment to assess impairments and symptoms and trigger referral to supportive care services, including cancer rehabilitation, psychosocial care, exercise interventions, and palliative care/symptom management
  • ACRM Cancer Rehabilitation Research Outcomes Project
    The primary aim of the ACRM Cancer Rehabilitation Research Outcomes Project is to crowd-source consensus about the best outcome measurement battery (potentially patient-reported measures and objective measures) that can be used to assess the efficacy of cancer rehabilitation interventions (Scope note: includes any cancer rehab intervention delivered by any member of the multi-disciplinary rehab team—e.g., physical or occupational therapy, speech therapy, physiatry, rehab/neuro psychology, exercise).
  • CaPTC-AC3-MADCaP Consortia Clinical Measures SIG
    This work space represents the CaPTC-AC3-MADCaP Consortia Clinical special interest group.
  • CaPTC-AC3-MADCaP Consortia Behavioral Measures SIG
    CaPTC-AC3-MADCaP Consortia Behavioral Measures workspace focuses on developing standardized behavioral data elements and tools for prostate cancer research in Black men and harmonizing behavioral data across the CaPTC, AC3 and MADCaP consortia.
  • CaPTC-AC3-MADCaP Consortia Epi & Genetics Measures SIG
    This work space represents the CaPTC-AC3-MADCaP Consortia Epidemiology-Genetics special interest group.
  • ADOPT Core Measures: Working Psychosocial Domain List
    To identify a core set of high-priority psychosocial measures for use in adult weight loss trials. This is one of four workspaces used by the Accumulating Data to Optimally Predict obesity Treatment (ADOPT) Core Measures Working Group as they considered and received feedback on constructs and measures. The list of core measures and constructs from all four ADOPT domains can be found at https://www.gem-measures.org/workspaces/ADOPT.  
  • ADOPT Core Measures: Working Behavioral Domain List
    To identify a core set of high-priority behavioral measures for use in adult weight loss trials.  This is one of four workspaces used by the Accumulating Data to Optimally Predict obesity Treatment (ADOPT) Core Measures Working Group as they considered and received feedback on constructs and measures. The list of core measures and constructs from all four ADOPT domains can be found at https://www.gem-measures.org/workspaces/ADOPT.

  • ADOPT Core Measures: Working Biological Domain LIst
    To identify a core set of high-priority biological measures for use in adult weight loss trials. This is one of four workspaces used by the Accumulating Data to Optimally Predict obesity Treatment (ADOPT) Core Measures Working Group as they considered and received feedback on constructs and measures.

  • ADOPT Core Measures: Working Environmental Domain List
    To identify a core set of high-priority environmental measures for use in adult weight loss trials. This is one of four workspaces used by the Accumulating Data to Optimally Predict obesity Treatment (ADOPT) Core Measures Working Group as they considered and received feedback on constructs and measures. The list of core measures and constructs from all four ADOPT domains can be found at https://www.gem-measures.org/workspaces/ADOPT.
  • Prostate Cancer Tri-Consortium
    This workspace is being used by three consortia who are working together to better understand the determinants of prostate cancer disparities in Black males.
  • HPV Vaccine Uptake
    The goal of the HPV Vaccine Uptake measures working group is to identify which measures each Cancer Center is using.
  • Health Behavior Theory (HBT)
    The goal of the Health Behavior Theory (HBT) GEM project is to make a significant contribution to the field by identifying and making readily accessible many theoretically driven health behavior measures.  Stakeholders are encouraged to provide feedback on these measures.
  • Tobacco Use by Cancer Patients
    This workspace is designed for users of the C-TUQ questionnaire and the NCI-AACR Cancer Patient Tobacco Use Assessment Task Force, a task force organized by the National Cancer Institute and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). The focus of the task force is the assessment of individual tobacco use in cancer-related settings, whether during screening, diagnosis, treatment, or survivorship.
  • Electronic Health Record (EHR) Campaign
    Goal: Identify a core set of brief, practical measures to be recommended for use in electronic health records (EHRs).
  • Distress Measurement Initiative (GEM-DM)
    Goals: 1) Assess which distress measures are being used in research and practice; and 2) Elicit feedback about the quality of current measures used in research and practice through ratings and comments, leading to promotion of the use of common measures.
  • Shared Decision Making
    Goal: To build consensus about the measurement of shared decision making(SDM) in the clinical setting by engaging the SDM research community in a discussion of priority SDM antecedent, process, quality, and outcome constructs and measures.
  • Developing a Global Cancer Stigma Index
    Goal: Test the translation and cultural context of a Spanish language cancer stigma index developed by RAND Corporation for LIVESTRONG.
  • Centers for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD)
    Goal: 1) To identify which measures each Center is using, and 2) to determine comparability of measures across all Centers for use in future studies.
  • GEM-Dissemination and Implementation Initiative (GEM-D&I)
    Goal: Build consensus in the dissemination and implementation (D&I) research and practice community around high-priority process and outcome measures for use in D&I studies.
  • Translation Initiative (TI) Workspace
    Goal: To select and translate measures related to prostate cancer into English, French, and Portuguese.
  • The GEM-Care Planning Initiative (GEM-CP)
    Goal: To build consensus in the survivorship community around high-priority process and outcome measures for use in studies of survivorship care planning.
  • Center of Excellence in Cancer Communication (CECCR) II Workspace
    Goal: Collaborate to vet and share health-related measures, and facilitate analyses using harmonized data.

Welcome to GEM, a web-based collaborative tool containing behavioral, social science, and other relevant scientific measures.

The goal of GEM is to support and encourage a community of users to drive consensus on best measures and share the resulting data from use of those measures.

GEM enables users to:

  • Add constructs or measures to the database
  • Contribute to and update existing information (metadata) about constructs and measures
  • Rate and comment on measures to drive consensus on best measures
  • Access and share harmonized data
  • Search for and download measures
