Healthcare Teams Cyber Discussion Series

The Healthcare Teams (HCT) Cyber Discussion series sponsored by the National Cancer Institute's Healthcare Delivery Research Program explores how healthcare teams utilize Health Information Technology (HIT) to improve cancer care delivery. Join interactive discussions with nationally recognized subject matter experts on whether information technology and healthcare teams can improve the process of healthcare and health outcomes in cancer care delivery.

Each Cyber Discussion in the series will feature a live presentation and interactive discussion on topics related to behavioral influences in cancer care. Nationally recognized leaders in the subject areas will present an overview and prepare specific questions for discussion among the participants. During the discussion sessions, participants will engage via a chat function to respond, comment, and pose additional questions for consideration.
