Session Abstract – PMWC 2017 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: This session focuses on community oncologists in their quest to integrate and embrace precision oncology – a very relevant topic given that 80% of oncology care in the US takes place in the community setting. We will hear from a community oncologist and a health care administrator about how they overcome struggles to solidify a process for institutional engagement while incorporating precision oncology into practice.
