Personalizing care goals to account for a patient’s values, preferences, or circumstances can make a significant difference in shared decision-making and treatment planning. In this episode, CANCER BUZZ speaks with Melissa Kah Poh Loh, MBBCh, BAO, assistant professor of Geriatric Hematology and Oncology at the University of Rochester Medical Center’s Wilmot Cancer Institute about strategies to optimize critical conversations with patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

“For older adults with acute myeloid leukemia, the treatment landscape has changed in the last few years…and their [patients’] preferences and goals really make a difference in what we ultimately choose together with patients and family members…incorporating this as part of the conversation is very important.” – Melissa Kah Poh Loh, MBBCh, BAO
