Cancer Care Publishes Findings From New  Oncology Provider Study

" Decision Making at the Point of Care: Voices of Oncology Providers" was developed as part of Cancer Care 's Patient Values Initiative (PVI) a multi-pronged effort aimed at reframing the national healthcare policy framework to ensure that patient engagement in treatment decision-making becomes the true standard of care. Cancer Care 's second PVI  report highlights provider perspectives on the importance and utility of learning about their patients' lifestyles and priorities.
