2011 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)
Once again, the city of Chicago hosted the leading minds in cancer care, as thousands of researchers, health professional and advocates convened for the 2011 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). Onsite to support our clients and soak in the latest in cancer advancements, we were excited to see a real focus on survivorship issues. One session at the congress, Survivorship Care: Who’s Job Is It?, began to look at important questions about survivorship care and found that the answers aren’t so simple. In fact, oncologists and physicians have some keen differences in how they are addressing survivorship care and how they believe it should be handled.
