ROCKVILLE, Md., July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on the success of last year's collaboration, the Association of

Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) and Advisory Board's Oncology Roundtable are again conducting a comprehensive survey that will explore how cancer programs across the country are moving forward and adapting in the midst of exciting, increasingly rapid advances in cancer care coupled with unprecedented change underway across the U.S. healthcare system.  Funding and support for the "Trending Now in Cancer Care" survey is provided by Pfizer Oncology.

"With a record number of respondents to last year's survey, ACCC is pleased to partner again with the Advisory Board's Oncology Roundtable to create this valuable snapshot focusing on how cancer programs are faring in today's healthcare environment," said Christian G.

"Our collaboration in conducting this trends survey brings the oncology community much-needed perspective on strengths and challenges of cancer programs in a health system that continues to struggle with transformation."

The 2018 "Trending Now in Cancer Care" survey will address:

  • Staffing retention and turnover
  • Burnout and building resilience
  • Leveraging technology, including telehealth utilization, EHR interoperability
  • Treatment advances, including biomarker testing protocols

  • Multidisciplinary approaches to care

"This year's survey will help cancer programs identify strategies to ensure success in a changing healthcare environment," said Deirdre Saulet, PhD, Practice Manager for Oncology Roundtable at Advisory Board. "We are grateful for the opportunity to continue our partnership with ACCC on this survey."

The "Trending Now in Cancer Care" survey is open to all oncology programs in the United States. Respondents do not need to be members of ACCC or Advisory Board to participate.
