Delivering on Patient-Centered Care

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

Patient centered care, i.e., putting the patient at the center of his or her care. I think about this a lot. What does it really mean? What is the disconnect? Is it achievable? How do we prepare patients and their families? How do we prepare health care professionals?

A focused fact finding mission: The Cancer Experience Registry

Saturday, July 6, 2013

The launch of the Cancer Support Community’s Multiple Myeloma Cancer Experience Registry is a huge step forward for all of us that have been afflicted with MM.

Thank you! Thank you! CSC and the entire team that has spent months of time developing this registry on our behalf!

Making a difference for others with cancer

Thursday, March 21, 2013

A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating and a journey that is unclear to those moving through it. Yet patients who have faced cancer are more than willing to share information about their experience perhaps with the hope that their learning can make it easier for people who are newly diagnosed. Today, the Research and Training Institute of the Cancer Support Community launched a first-of-its-kind Cancer Experience Registry which aims to understand the many facets of the cancer experience through the eyes of those who have experienced it first-hand.

Anyone touched by cancer can join the registry to share their experience, compare their responses to others who have joined and explore resources available to them.
