Supportive Cancer Care Models and Equity – Reaching the Underserved Through Telehealth
Online
400 N Ingalls

United States

The world has changed significantly over the past year, but the needs of vulnerable and underserved patients remain as urgent as ever. Supportive care interventions aim to prevent and treat physical, psychological, social, and spiritual problems related to cancer. Alliance program partners are improving the quality of life of vulnerable and underserved persons with cancer through supportive care programs that aim to address their psychosocial concerns and reduce barriers to care. As many clinical centers around the country have had to increase their reliance on telehealth to deliver safe cancer care, the Alliance sites, too, have been working to adapt to the new world order. The Alliance to Advance Patient-Centered Cancer Care is hosting supportive care practitioners from the University of Arizona Cancer Center and the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center. They will share actionable insights into reaching vulnerable and underserved patients through telehealth. This program is perfect for social workers, navigators, mental health counselors, cancer researchers, and all supportive care providers in the field of oncology and beyond.
