NCCN Patient Advocacy Summit 2019
NCCN Patient Advocacy Summit: Delivering Value for Patients across the Oncology Ecosystem
Save the Date! The NCCN will host a Patient Advocacy Summit: Delivering Value for Patients across the Oncology Ecosystem on December 11, 2019 in Washington, DC.
The gap between the understanding of value-based care from a patient perspective as compared to physicians and the health system is one of the biggest barriers to patient-centered care. This Patient Advocacy Summit will highlight the patient perspective related to delivering value-based and high-quality cancer care, implications associated with the term value, and the application of the value proposition within policymaking and clinical decision-making. The Summit will also provide opportunity to assess progress in the application of value across the health care ecosystem, utilization of tools, data collection efforts, and evaluation of continued challenges and next steps to promote patient-centered care.
