A mix-method approach to understand clinician use of biomarker testing for patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
March is Multiple Myeloma Awareness Month. Learn how ACCC is supporting collaboration among healthcare providers with practical, scalable solutions to the real-world challenges of improving quality care delivery for patients with multiple myeloma.
In 2021, ACCC held a series of focus groups to learn how cancer programs are effectively implementing telehealth to manage symptoms and treatment side effects, deliver psychosocial screening and support services, and provide genetic counseling and testing.
As precision medicine becomes more common in the management of lung cancer, little is understood about the patient experience with biomarker testing, particularly of underserved patients. This study used survey and focus group methodology to determine patient perspectives on the educational needs within this community.
Genetic counselors can help individuals understand their risk of cancer, make medical decisions based on relevant genetic findings, take steps to lower their cancer risk, and make informed decisions about the most effective course of treatment after a cancer diagnosis. But despite the importance of the services they provide, genetic counselors are not considered to be providers, and their services …
ACCC has launched Transforming Complex to Clear—a precision medicine campaign that has developed a range of tools and resources to help bring clarity to complex patient care decisions. Designed for multidisciplinary cancer teams, learn more about how these resources can enable clinicians to make educated and confident decisions.
In launching its new campaign, "Transforming Complex To Clear," ACCC brought together expert panelists to discuss effective practices and offer tips to address current barriers to biomarker testing in the community setting.
An expert ACCC Steering Committee shares 32 informed treatment and care delivery recommendations for the ideal care of patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
An integrated precision tracking program ensures proper follow-up care and surveillance for survivors of colorectal cancer.
This ACCC education program shares key highlights from a national survey of thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists on the barriers that exist in the ideal management of patients with NSCLC.
For resources on COVID-19 as it applies to the oncology community, please visit ACCC’s continually updated Coronavirus Resource page.

St. Vincent Hospital implemented a collaborative method of care that uses genetic counselor extenders to increase patient access to risk assessment and genetic testing.
This is the fifth post in a seven-blog series highlighting the achievements of the 2019 ACCC Innovator Award Winners. Join us at the upcoming ACCC 36th National Oncology Conference, Oct. 30 – Nov. 1, 2019, in Orlando, Florida, where all of this year's Innovator Award recipients will be presenting on their pioneering initiatives. It has historically been difficult to obtain genetic cancer counseling …
The crowds may have left, but last week’s ACCC 45th Annual Meeting & Cancer Center Business Summit held March 20-22, in Washington, D.C., leaves lingering food for thought regarding how cancer programs and practices can adapt and grow by addressing today’s (and tomorrow’s) most challenging healthcare delivery issues. Over three days, sessions explored how our healthcare and our cancer care delivery …
Early identification, staging, and diagnosis of lung cancer is critical to improving patient outcomes. However, current diagnostic options are limited in accuracy, safety, and invasiveness—only 15 percent of patients with lung cancer are diagnosed at an early stage. Read how Fox Chase Cancer Center has implemented new flexible robotic endoscopic technology to diagnose hard-to-reach lung nodules with …
Because of its growing retirement-age population and its unique location on a barrier island, The Outer Banks Hospital saw patients with lung cancer presenting at too late a stage for curative treatment. Learn how the hospital created an LDCT program and partnered with local providers and community cancer centers to identify patients with lung cancer at an earlier stage.
Lung cancer screenings are more effective and more affordable than ever before, but patient access still poses significant hurdles. Read how Levine Cancer Institute’s mobile lung LDCT unit brings lung screenings to underserved communities.
The Inherited Cancer Registry (ICARE) is an academic-community partnership among healthcare providers, researchers, and individuals at an increased risk for inherited cancer.
