Precision Medicine

Precision medicine delivers personalized cancer care based on an individual’s genomics, lifestyle, and environment. Precision medicine implements the use of biomarkers, molecular testing, and targeted therapies to tailor treatment plans that address the unique needs of every patient.

Helping to bring personalized cancer care into focus, ACCC transforms complex science into clear and actionable education that brings clarity to patient care decisions. From essential knowledge on cancer screening updates to clinically impactful biomarker testing and new cancer diagnostic assay development, the ACCC Precision Medicine Library has fundamental resources that match the professional needs and preferred learning styles of the multidisciplinary cancer team.

Cancer Diagnostics

ACCC develops targeted educational resources and programs that help multidisciplinary cancer care teams stay up to date on the latest advancements in cancer diagnostics. This includes resources on subjects including biomarkers, measurable residual disease (MRD) testing, multi-cancer early detection, and pathology.

Care Coordination

ACCC offers a variety of educational and practical resources to help community programs achieve a more coordinated care experience for their patients. This includes projects and resources on eliminating disparities in precision medicine, genetic counseling, and precision medicine stewardship.


ACCC provides members with the latest information, resources, and programs so they can better assist their patients with critical care decisions. This includes programs on managing adverse events, usage of biosimilars in treatment, bispecific antibodies, and immunotherapy.

On-Demand Webinars

  • Now available is a 30-minute eCourse for members of the multidisciplinary cancer care team on how to use consistent, evidence-based health literacy best practices as it relates to lung cancer biomarker testing. Complete “Health Literacy Best Practices for Lung Cancer Biomarkers” to gain a lexicon of health terminology that resonates with patients and their caregivers and access downloadable resources about health literacy and biomarkers.

  • Hear patient advocacy professionals discuss the impact of using patient-centered vocabulary during precision medicine conversations.

  • This webinar will highlight how community cancer programs are using a new approach to optimize biomarker testing processes through the addition of a precision medicine steward. Precision medicine experts will outline strategies and key metrics that demonstrate how precision medicine stewardship can improve coordination and streamline workflows to ensure timely, equitable testing for patients who may benefit from targeted therapy.

  • This webinar will review how the steps in the life cycle of a patient specimen can affect its molecular integrity and molecular analysis results. Our expert speaker will define the roles of stewardship across the specimen chain of custody, discuss common factors that compromise specimen fitness for molecular testing, and describe solutions to improve preanalytics and tissue stewardship.

  • Two thought leaders who have deep knowledge of—and experience in—biomarker testing in patients with hematologic malignancies will discuss best practices for biomarker testing in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and multiple myeloma based on patient case discussions and the latest guidelines.
