Strategies for Health Care Providers to Mitigate Cancer Care Disparities: A Multidisciplinary Panel Discussion

Release Date: February 8, 2021
Expiration Date: December 23, 2022

Activity Overview

A multitude of barriers to optimal cancer care are experienced throughout the health care system in the United States. Often, such disparities in cancer incidence, diagnosis, and outcomes can be preventable, but are the results of social and economic inequities. Through careful examination of patients’ cultural beliefs, socioeconomic status, insurance type and access to insurance, as well as genetic or biologic differences in disease presentation and progression, health care professionals across the cancer care continuum have opportunities to impact social determinants of health. Physicians, nurses, and pharmacists practicing on the oncology care team each serve distinct, key roles in addressing cancer care disparities and closing gaps in patient outcomes. In this panel discussion, multiple perspectives from oncology care professionals will be represented to share and promote strategies for mitigation of identified disparities.

This educational activity is an archive of the live virtual symposium held on December 16, 2021.
