Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia


Practice patterns and resources are not well established for patients with less common cancers such as acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). Many patients are treated at large academic medical centers after initial diagnoses in the community cancer program setting and returned to the community for follow-up. In addition, community cancer programs are challenged to keep up with evolving treatments, new chemotherapeutic agents, and the availability of clinical trials for patients with APL. ACCC's acute promyeloctyic leukemia (APL) project seeks to improve the quality of care for APL patients and their families treated at community cancer programs.
