EoCC is a study of non small cell lung, colorectal and breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy in 12 treatment facilities in NSW. Two cohorts of patients were recruited. The first cohort of 310 patients were recruited from January to November in 2009 and the second cohort of 189 patients from April to October in 2010. Treatment, resource utilisation and demographic data were collected using medical record reviews and interviews with patients. Patients also consented to person-level linkage of their secondary health data: cancer notifications, pharmaceutical dispensing records, medical services claims, hospital separations, emergency department visits, death registrations.
