Empower Your Cancer Treatment by Facilitating PCP Involvement
Cancer is the leading cause of death in the United States. Although strides have been made in prevention and early detection, a great need remains for a multi-faceted view of the cancer care continuum. In order to meet the needs of patients, primary care physicians (PCPs), who are increasingly at the forefront of cancer screenings and evaluation of symptoms, should be a part of the team-oriented approach to caring for patients with cancer.

In this study, HRA® explores:
