Practice patterns and resources are not well established for patients with less common cancers such as myelofibrosis. Community cancer programs may be challenged to keep up with evolving treatments, new anti-cancer medications, and the availability of clinical trials for patients with myelofibrosis.

Effective Practices in Myelofibrosis Programs

Effective Practices in Myelofibrosis ProgramsThrough a recent survey and needs assessment process, ACCC identified three member programs with expertise in treating patients with myelofibrosis. Read Effective Practices in Myelofibrosis Programs to gain insight into improving care delivery for patients with myelofibrosis.

The featured programs are serving as ACCC Community Resource Centers. ACCC members with less experience in caring for this patient population can contact any of these programs to ask questions and receive collaborative support in treating patients with myelofibrosis.

For a perspective on caring for this patient population, read Ask An ACCC Community Resource Center by Timothy Tyler, PharmD, FCSHP, of the Desert Regional Medical Center, Comprehensive Cancer Center, Palm Springs, Calif., an ACCC Community Resource Center for Myelofibrosis.
