“The science of oncology is exploding and keeping up with all the information is a daunting task,” said Dr. Penberthy. “We’ll identify opportunities to use AI-driven practice support tools and patient wearable devices so we can focus on critical issues, such as shared medical decision-making, workforce shortages, improving care to underserved and marginalized patients, increasing clinical trial participation, and delivering person-centered care.”
The resources and tools that will be developed in conjunction with Dr. Penberthy’s President’s Theme will be posted to this webpage as they become available.
