It’s well documented that adherence to NCCN Guidelines® improves outcomes for patients with cancer including improved overall survival and quality of life. Despite this, racial disparities in access to guideline concordant cancer care persist. The Elevating Cancer Equity joint initiative between the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), and National Minority Quality Forum (NMQF) aims to go beyond discussion toward actionable solutions.
In this one hour webinar, attendees will hear from the co-chairs of the Elevating Cancer Equity Working Group about policy and practice recommendations to effect meaningful change to reduce racial disparities in cancer care. Participants will also have the opportunity to join the discussion and learn ways in which they may work to improve equitable access to high-quality cancer care.
