Healthcare Teams Cyber Discussion Series
The 2018-2019 Healthcare Teams (HCT) Cyber Discussion series will explore challenges and opportunities healthcare teams, patients, and their families face in their mutual interest to establish an effective partnership during the delivery of cancer care. Join nationally recognized clinicians and patient advocates for interactive discussions on how patient engagement can improve patient satisfaction, provider-patient communication, and patient-reported outcomes in cancer care delivery.
Each Cyber Discussion features a live presentation and interactive discussion. Nationally recognized leaders in the subject areas will present an overview and prepare specific questions for discussion among participants. During the discussion period, participants engage via a chat function to respond, comment, and pose questions for additional research.
